We were talking about a video I saw about a tattoo place, where they have a gumball machine and it's called "Get What You Get". You pay $50 and get a gumball that has a "tattoo" on it. Then, YOU GET THAT TATTOO!  Apparently, if you don't like that one, you can pay another $10 and get a replacement one that you'll *hopefully* like better.

Well, it turns out that one of these "Get What Ya Get" tattoo places exists here in Michigan!  It's right in Holt (in the Lansing area) and it's called Vivid Ink.  It's pretty cool, don't you think?

So, if you are looking to get a new tattoo but just have NO IDEA what to get, Vivid Ink can hook you up for a good deal and you don't have to worry about coming up with an idea.  It looks like they even stock the machine with themed tattoos (hence the love-themed tattoos from around Valentine's Day.)

We found out on the show, just how many people in the Clique of 6 have tattoos and it's a LOT. Some have tatts with lots of meaning. Some have tatts that they've had for years and maybe don't have "that" much meaning anymore. Some have gotten them with family members or friends and they all have matching ones. Some (me included) have memorial tattoos in honor of loved ones.

It used to be that people with tattoos had to worry about trying to find new jobs, because not every business was super welcoming to people who had visible tattoos. I read this week that businesses have loosened up on that idea for a couple of reasons:

  1. SOOO many people have tatts now, that they fear they'll miss a great job candidate.
  2. Many managers have FINALLY figured out that a lot of people who have tattoos also have lots of creativity. And what manager would NOT want to hire a creative person?

So, let's get back to the random tattoo idea...  Would you EVER get a "random gumball tattoo"?
