    Kat Von Dee *cough* Kat VD? Not worth the canvas she’s painted on. But I have to say its a beautiful picture, none the less.

    I’ve been to the shop, got a tattoo. It’s an awesome place to see. Wall to wall people, customers as well as people just wanting to see the shop. This place is by far the cleanest tattoo shop I have ever been too. I flew in from Phila PA and would go back in a heart beat for another.
