$20 for a Horse Tattoo!?

Posted by admin On May - 26 - 2008

~Z.T.~ I don’t think I’ll ever understand this. As we walked into the gates Sunday morning, the wrist band checkers were announcing $20 for horse tattoos. I figured it meant they were giving horse tattoos..for $20…which doesn’t make much sense. Did the tattoo artist only know how to draw horses?

Andy thought they were paying people $20 if they already had a horse tattoo. Well, we forgot about it for 12 hours, until on the way out of the festival we overheard “$15 for a horse tattoo.” I had to ask.

This guy heard the same shpeal we heard while walking in and now he had to know. I love that he undercut their price. Was he going to bring his new horse tattoo clad friend over and make a cool $5 profit? I wish I knew. I wish I knew.

    I’m confused, was there a tattoo artist at the festival giving horse tattoos for $20, and then another one starting giving them out for $15 at the end of the festival? And what exactly was the “shpeal” you heard? Was it literally just the wristband checkers yelling out “horse tattoos, 20 dollars”?

    yeah, Jason. it is confusing i’ll admit. The latter is correct. They were literally just yelling out “horse tattoos. 20 dollars.” I don’t get it. The copy cat was yelling out horse tattoos- $15. His explanation was that he wanted to see one.
