  1. You can bring kids. I saw a few kids there last year. I wouldn't recommend taking them into Sin Alley. Although I did see a man with a young child on his shoulders watching the pole dancers. My friend and I laughed with a guy that was trying to get a picture of the kid and the pole dancers in the background. I was surprised to see a kid there-- I thought that area was 18+. Otherwise, it's a pretty kid-friendly event as long as he/she is well-behaved. - - - Updated - - - Last year, there was a man walking around with a young boy (maybe around 8-10 yrs old) who had no shirt on and was covered in temporary tattoos. A women asked if she could take a picture of him and the boy responded, "Five Dollars." So some kids seem to have fun. I don't know what your daughter's interests are, but she may like the cars, rockabilly people, and seeing the Queen Mary.
  2. Hi everybody, I am not sure if I mentioned this before, but I am an undergraduate studying sociology. For the past year or so, I have been conducting an ethnographic study on tattoo artists and gender. I have spent many hours engaging in participant observation at two tattoo shops and have interviewed local tattoo artists. I am currently working on my paper but am struggling to find information on the number of tattoo artists in the United States and the gender breakdown. I have been looking through the Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) website, but I cannot find specific statistics on tattoo artists. The BLS lumps craft and fine artists together and doesn't provide a demographic breakdown. I am not sure if this information is available, but I am trying my best to provide as accurate a description of the industry demographics as possible. Do any of you have recommendations as to how I might find this information?
  3. @TrixieFaux Cute family. :)
  4. I definitely agree. I've only been to one tattoo shop where that wasn't the case-- I didn't go back.
  5. Ugh, white ink tattoos. There's quite a few young women where I live who want, like, or have white ink tattoos. I wouldn't be surprised.
  6. I've wondered, too. @Delicious I don't think it's creepy that you look at pictures of people on Instagram. They posted the pictures after all.
  7. Welcome! Who have you got tattoos from?
  8. @Graeme is right. You are now required to share pictures
  9. I have been wondering the same thing... - - - Updated - - - I have been wondering the same thing...
  10. I think it just depends on what you want and how you'd like to go about getting tattoos. I went to the same artist for some of my tattoos because I was more comfortable going to the same person. Now, I am interested in finding great artists and having tattoos from many different artists... And since joining LST, I want to save up money and travel to get tattooed. :o
