    Apparently there's a "rants and raves" section of craigs list where you can review local businesses, etc. There's even discussion forums there. I didn't even know this. But anyway there IS and my one partner brought this to my attention...

    I actually remember the kid. Came in a few months ago. When I quoted him the price he started throwing CRAZY attitude and said "who do you think you are?" or something like that.
    And I didn't tell him to get a Wal-Mart tattoo... I believe my exact words were "When Wal-Mart starts offering tattoos I'll let you know".

    I'm an "a-hole". :jj:


    Anyway his post got some responses. All of them negative. Here are a few...

    THIS one is the best...

    Sounds like a boring tattoo he was going for too.

    who in the hell would want a tattoo that cost LESS than $80!!
    if someone quoted a price lower than that, I'd assume I'd be getting a prison tat

    Reply B: The only place you're going to get a tattoo for less than $80 is in prison or a Nazi concentration camp.

    You should tranquilize dudes like that, ink a cum spurting penis on their face and dump them a couple of blocks away. :jj:

    my only knowledge of this universe is the end results i see on many of my acquaintances.

    not a one of them have ever been dis-satisfied with their work.


    this guy who wont shell out more than $20 for ink has to be a newf. 1 of every 3 newfs i meet have those horrible homemade jobs.

    Young kind. MAYBE 21 but could have been younger. I've tattooed him before actually and he wasn't a douche. Mother Mary flash piece. Don't remember what I charged him.
    He was kinda skinny. Pale. Seemed like the nerdy/goth type but not extremely goth. Just kind of a social outcast trying to find his place in the world as such.

    Never had a tattoo -- my only experience with it, is I was asked to write the code regulating tattoo parlors in a Minnesota college town -- I download the codes of 5 or 6 big cities, and combined the parts I thought sounded good and hygienic. Since I had never actually been in one, I had to use my imagination about how it should go. It ended up being something like 10 pages long.

    I'm having difficulty squaring the goth/social outcast type with the "Everybody Loves Raymond" request. :jj:

    Tell him if he really wants to be hardcore he should pay someone to shoot him so he could show off the scar. I saw a doc one time where some fool actually did that shit. Tats weren't "extreme" enough for him. :jj:

    Reading his post (and the responses to it) made my fucking DAY. Truly. I was laughing so hard at the way people just owned this kid.

    When this happened he left the shop in a huff. He was arguing with me and said "You're go out of business with those prices." I said "The shop's been here for 10 years, dude. I think we've got enough business."
    THEN he said as he was walking a out "Well, ya just lost MINE!" to which I responded "Good. I don't want yours."

    :jj:

    He got bent. I only wish I could have seen his face when he realized not a single person agreed with his little "rant".

    Probably half of my work I got for free, it pays to have friends that are kick ass artists.
