Tattoo Grab Bag!
To try and come up with some new images, and new modes of thinking, we are taking a cue from our brothers and sisters the Surrealists. For those interested, the Exquisite Corpse was a game played by these artists where a picture or sentenced is collectively composed at random. It was an exercise in creating something new and tapping into realms not yet tapped.
To play our Tattoo Grab bag game, you will select 2 or 3 pieces of paper from our mystery box. The pieces of paper contain a wide array of various objects, some tattoo related, some not. The selected objects will then be married in design by yours truly as we see fit according to size and area of the body.
The point is to come up with something new, be it ridiculous or completely nonsensical. It's all about chance. There's a chance you could pick a skull and a rose.
To make it worth wild, all Exquisite Corpse Tattoos will forever be half price.
So give it some thought, and in the words of Mr. Carlin....
........"Take a fucking chance! Put a little fun in your life! ... most Americans are soft and frightened and unimaginative and they don't realize there's such a thing as dangerous fun, and they certainly don't recognize a good show when they see one."
