Tattoos

Tattoos were taboos when I was growing up, but with the recent influence of Miami Ink and LA Ink, many are seeing tattoos more as an art form. I personally have three tattoos, but I dowan to show lah. But now, in KK, there are quite a number of tattoo parlors. With a 'valid' reason aka photo assignment, I went into 76th Street Tattoo Workshop at Gaya Street to get some shots, and also ask a price to do a tattoo. Prices are reasonable, now to think of another design.....

The artist acting like he is tattoo-ing....other guy is the other artist



Looked like some kind of tattoo award the shop won, its gold, or gold color lah.



If you want your tattoo to be inked on traditionally, opt for the Needle-on-a-Stick method, (its not a popsicle). I think I will stay away from this ancient method.



So, the location of the store is next to the famous bah kut teh shop across Jesselton Hotel. And guess who got hungry?

Why is that...the artistry of tattoos haven't been "honored" until a few shows come out...it really does take a lot of precision & talent to create such markings.

Interesting, I'll try to pop by the place you suggested one day although I'm quite particular about who does my tattoo. I've heard and seen stories where tattoos fade within a year! So yeah, btw I got my 2nd tattoo done! ;) I'm catching up...hehehe

hey dee, ask them for a guarentee for a free touch up if fade after one year. by the way, they have a write up on Breeze Sabah magazine, available at The Bed, Cocoon, Razz, and maybe by now, Shan
