haha, i was thinking, wondering, hoping, that someone out there that's going to the jambo (or someone in the slabs) knows how to tattoo semi-decently?

I have a stupid-easy cover up i want done on my wrist (three thick black lines) and if i could find someone to do it, I figure i could buy a cheap tattoo set online and then other people could get tats too.

might be a ridiculous idea, but we did it a few years back when i lived at east jesus, you just have to tattoo in an RV or something so you're not doing it outside. despite it being a cheap kit, it did a pretty good job.

anyways, just an idea, if anyone has the skill.

You can just get tattoo needles online in bulk ($8 for like 500 I think?) and use them for stick & poke. Thats generally what I do for myself, its so easy & nearly painless, plus clean up for a machine is a pain in the ass.

I've found it helps a lot to have a friend hold the area to be tatted taught, it prevents bleeds & shaky lines. The first time I did it to myself I didn't know that and it had to be cleaned up. Regardless of whether or not you go machine congratulations on your future ink / cover up! Wish I could make it to the gathering but I'll be thinking about yall from the south.

true, but what i want requires a decent amount of black work; i tried to have someone do that with a single needle once and it not only took forever but just came out horribly.

Hi ya'll, I'm headed out to the Jambo today and I happen to be traveling with a... drumroll... tattoo artist working on a tattoo documentary. She'll have the supplies to do stick and poke but no tattoo machine. Contact us for more info or meet up instructions!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
