Prior to the second series, Lou released the following statement: "I'm Guessing that by now most people have figured out that I'm not taking part in season2 of TattooFixers, There's nothing to worry about & no big secret.... Season1 gave me a glimpse of where the show was going & where it would take my lifestyle & career & I decided it wasn't for me. I wish all the best to those taking part in the new series, but I've decided to step away. I already have the job of my dreams & tattoo for the love of the art & culture that birthed it, so I'm concentrating on developing my tattooing, pushing my preferred styles & heading into new ventures. I'll be working on a new Web series where I have creative control & hope to more fully represent what I feel about the culture of tattooing. So stay tuned for plenty of new tattoo related projects. Thank you everyone for your continued interest & support"
