We've certainly been busy over here at Tiki Tattoos. The month long $20 piercing sale is unfortunately over, but be sure to look for a bunch of new promotional material, advertisements, and deals on piercing and tattoo work.
Starting October 15th and lasting until the 19th, we're having Military Appreciation Week! All military personnel with an active duty ID will get 20% off all tattoo work over $100. This goes for Coast Guard cadets, too!
On a more personal note, I've been piercing my friends and taking photos to document my progress. The experience of piercing friends is totally different from piercing a customer. When a client comes in, I'm always concerned with making them feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. A lot of the time, this means not having the sort of conversations with Niki during the procedure that I'd like to - conversations about technique, potential problems, etc.
When I pierce my friends, I know they're there to help me learn. I feel more able to discuss the procedure, their anatomy, and potential risks involved in what I'm doing. So far, I've pierced navels, tongues, nipples, and ears.
