    I'm back. Someone summarize the week's goings-on.

    My week was good. Very productive, fun and problem-free.
    Uploading some "amusing" pics. Be patient...

    I rented the space for a great price. All mine. I did tattoos and henna (mostly real tattoos though).
    Made out well. Worked my ass off. Long days, but it was worth it.

    I ate the shit out of a massive turkey leg...

    Yea. Here's the whole scoop...

    They have a huge festival every Halloween. The largest fest in KS. They close down streets from Wed to Sat. There's tons of food, rides, games, music and other entertainment, as well as vendors, crafts, parades, etc. On Saturday I couldn't get NEAR my "shop". I literally had to park a mile away- that's how packed it was. The town just floods with people, many of which come from miles around/neighboring states. The bars, restaurants and local businesses extend their hours to "whenever".
    It's very family-friendly during the day but it's a party at night.

    The whole town gets involved... decorating, etc. They even switch out their manhole covers with ones pained like jack-o-lanterns.

    I go to the town to visit my friends each year anyway, so this year I figured I'd go for the fest and make some money, which I did. It was really busy, especially since there's NO other tattoo shop anywhere around.

    Had to save the partying until late... most nights I worked until at least 10; once until midnight.
