    4. AUDITION COPY – TATTOO ARTIST: Please say the following line (in bold below) three (3) times, with a different read each time. Director’s Note: The line should be said sternly, the way you would while in the middle of tattooing someone “Don’t move.”
    5. AUDITION COPY – FACTORY OWNER: Please say the following line (in bold below) three (3) times, with a different read each time.  Please note that you are arm wrestling with “Bob” who is trying to convince you to lower your prices. Director’s Note: Relenting — you’ve been holding out on this deal for a long time, but Bob finally pressured you into it. This should be earnest, but not over-done.“Ok, ok, $799 for the whole shebang! Whatever you want!”
