11:08 am - ’Cause you’re never too young to emulate the thug life





The ultimate tattoo pen for boys! Create realistic, cool tattoos with dramatic effects! Electronic tattoo pen with 3 washable pen colours and 9 funky stencils. Use the designs or make up your own!


Open up your very own pretend play tattoo parlor. This easy-to-use tattoo maker kit includes an electronic tattoo pen and funky stencils. Using soft, safe pulsating action, the tattoo pen creates realistic, washable designs with dramatic effects. Requires two AA batteries (not included).


On toy store shelves just in time for the holidays is the Gr8 Gear TaT2 Pen! Works with 2 AA batteries for that authentic buzzing and vibration – everything but the pain and the blood and the scary meth addicts hanging around outside the parlor! Only problem is that the ink in the pens provided washes off, but that can be easily remedied by a couple of clever and resourceful boys.

Later they’re going to go shake down grandma for some money and skate over to the '11 for some large Slurpees and candy cigarettes. Notice that the older kid is wearing his trucker cap backwards – and we all know what that means!

Available at Target, Amazon, eToys, and elsewhere.

I guess this means tattooing has officially jumped the shark.

Well that certainly looks a lot less painful and probably a hell of a lot cheaper than the back tat I'm planning.

Not sure what's crazier -- that this products exists, or that the marketers are selling it under a brand name that looks like an a chav-ish txt message.

Ah well, gotta love the tatt outlines they provide: a stylized flag, naval anchor and star, fb helmet, cougar...and $ sign? :-p

For some reason the product name struck me as almost British in its textual bluntness and mangling.

Not to mention a death's head/skull-and-crossbones! So why'd that little wuss choose a dolphin?!?!!

Is he getting a dolphin, or a killer whale/shark?

I'm a bit miffed they left out a USMC bulldawg design, unless those are on the sheet under the first.

If you have to turn the cap around it isn't worth the bother..........

That's my son! Sniff! I'm so proud of him. (holding back the tears...)

Next year, he gets his first jailhouse tattoo gun, made from a tape recorder motor, Bic pen and sewing needle. And I'm getting him three different colors of India ink to help him express his creativity... unless he wants to create his own ink by burning plastic and using the tar for pigment.

Kids, they grow up so fast. SIgh. :(

I don't know ... I have a teenager who's been pushing me to take her to get a tatoo. (I'd promised if she waits until she's 18, I'll take her to someone who can do it right.) This might be the PERFECT gift to really jerk her chain!!! *smiles*

I'm all in favor of it.

Nice thing is with a little modification you can use the star stencil to give yourself a nice pentagram in the center of your forehead like the guy I used to see around my Upper West Side neighborhood growing up.

And by reference, now I'm thinking we need little surface-mount LEDs with a diffusing lens attached to a minimalist button cell holder that has an adhesive backing so people can do Lite-Brite on their skin! :) I know I've seen units like this for the navel, but they need to be smaller to do a pattern on your upper arm, say. ;)

I know! I mean, now that you can get Prince Albert wands in rainbow anodized colors, every kid is going to get once (provided he can keep it away from his sister, who keeps using it as a magic wand with her fairy princess doll).

speaking of, have you seen the prince's wands from steelwerks that come with plastic tubing where one end connects to the wand and t'other fits in the mouth?

Whawt's that, 'ol chap? Kiddie Tatts, you say?

Abomination!

Leviticus 19:28 - "Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord."

Dear diary,

Yesterday afternoon, Johnny let me blindfold him and pick out a TaT2.

Instead, I wrote,
"Kevin {heart} Johnny"
" Forever "

When he took off the blindfold, he socked me so hard and ran into the bathroom to wash it off as fast as he could. I cried.

This morning he told me to come by this afternoon. I can hardly write this.

Bye,
Kev"

Hmmm. Might be worth putting on the neffs' christmas list. There's talk that my brother's family will be moving to Texas soon. Perhaps in lieu of a .22 and a camo vest, this'll do?
