As jaded as I am by the whole celebrity spotting thing in Los Angeles, there’s still something oddly surreal about my local Ralphs Grocery Store sharing the same parking lot as High Voltage Tattoo, the La Brea and Fountain storefront used for the reality show L.A. Ink.
Driving by I’ll frequently see tourists and other “looky-loos” peering inside what looks like just another tattoo parlor, but every once the place will be jammed with camera crews, and just last week there was a camera jib being worked outside on the sidewalk. Y’know, to capture the reality.
Well, if you’d also like to join in the reality, the star of L.A. Ink, the voluptuously gorgeous Kat Von D, is offering $20 tattoos beginning at noon, Friday, December 14th, all in an effort to get into Guiness.
I know it’s short notice, but here’s your chance to help me out AND be part of history! I’m gonna be tattooing for 24 HOURS STRAIGHT, and I’m aiming at doing 400 tattoos! I’m pretty sure with the help of everyone, this can be an amazing and fun success!
As for me, I’m squeemish enough about the idea of getting a tattoo, let alone having anyone try to needle me on, say, the 19th hour or later.
Full details, rules, etc., are up at Naked Tattoo News, including the catch: you don’t get to choose the tattoo. Kat writes, “I’m gonna be doing an “LA” tattoo logo that was approved by Guinness.”
