Let's Go Get Married, Uhm, I Mean Tattooed

Sahara 3 Lions Tattoo

Ten years ago, probably the biggest Vegas mistake you could make - other than gambling away the rent money - was waking up married to a stranger. As my lawyer once said to me, mistakes created with paper work are easily solved by paperwork five times as expensive.

What a better way to show your undying temporary love then to head to one of the many tattoo shops sprouting up inside of casinos and get the name of him or her tattooed on your whatever. At the very least, you'll remember their name when you wake up the next morning.

The recent additions of Sahara's 3 Lions Tattoo and Mirage's King Ink tattoo parlors, brings the grand total of resorts with tattoo parlors to nine - Riviera, Sahara, Planet Hollywood, Hard Rock, Palms, Mirage, Mandalay Bay, O'Shea's and Rio.

Apparently, there are enough people out there interested in bringing home permanent souvenirs that these places are not only staying put but expanding to other resorts.

The question I have is would you get a tattoo in Vegas?

Already have it. VIVA LAS VEGAS under the left buttcheek.

I thought about it many times walking past H&H in Palms and now Hard Rock, but haven't actually gone through with it. Maybe someday...

I can get new ink at home, my Vegas time is way too valuable.

too expensive in Vegas. And I'm usually too drunk, so my blood runs as thin as my JD

Since I have no intentions to ever get one here in the confines of the Greater Atlanta area (I did about 12 years ago come very close to getting one though, had the design in mind as well as the artist picked out.), the same goes double for Las Vegas.

To make it even easier, King Ink includes a bar.

Holy crap the Riv has a tatoo parlor, who the hell is getting ink there? While I know Sahara has become a bit more of a dive, at least it still has a measure of respectability, I think the Riv lost it's a while ago or when the Stardust was imploded.

Wife got one in 08 at Vince's place in O'Sheas. Yes expensive but great work. Pretty cool to see her in the chair while I was shooting craps...

Got one at H&H last year....

Between the pool time/drinking time that it will take up, I think pricing might be questionable.
Last week at King Ink I was quoted $600 for what I wanted, then the hostess asked another artist and he said $300.

Waiting for Circus Circus...
