Campaign against TLC's 'Tattoo School'

Over at Deer Brains we've been made aware of a show that is due to air in July on the TLC network called 'Tattoo School', which supposedly holds the secrets to becoming a first class tattoo artist without any formal training over the course of two weeks. Truth is, there is no 'secret' to becoming a great tattoo artist- success is a combination of hard work, determination, talent and rigourous practice.

The airing of this atrocity will no doubt lead to many cases of poorly done tattoos by 'scratchers', people who perform cheap home tattoos without the correct license to perform such work. There has been a Facebook group launched to combat this show, to reason with the TLC before they air this show and, as a consequence, ruin the skins of many people looking for a cheap tattoo with a poor design by an unqualified moron wielding a tattoo gun. Check out the Facebook group here, and spread the word! You'll be sure to get a few laughs at some awful tattoos while you're there, but remember- if this show airs, you can also be sure that there will be copy cats to cause even more permanent wreckage to people.

Don't forget: 99% of the time, a good tattoo ain't cheap, and a cheap tattoo ain't good!
