    If it sounds like I have a little southern accent I’ll have to say guilty.
    I’ve recently moved back home to the cold north after a 20 year career as a Pro DJ in Texas making the people dance and have fun.
    As a side venture in Midland Texas, I invested in Airbrush Tattoo kits and man did I ever have fun doing these tats on kids. Plus it was very lucrative and simple to co ordinate. Now I didn’t do more than say 30 events in the time I did them but it was a great thing for me to try because it was totally different stress than the pressure of controlling a DJ crowd.
    In fact the money was secondary to the smiles on the kids faces when I told them to check out the tat in the mirror. Can I say 100% success every time. Yeppers.! Never had one unhappy customer.
    Looks like I might have trouble finding a job after being laid off this week so I’m going all in on the tattoo business.
    Going to do it big time I think by advertising it as if it already is hugely popular and desired for birthdays and get togethers. I’ll start with a couple of low cost promotional gigs. Like 2 hours $100.00 and I’ll keep going non stop and do as many as possible. Maybe have a coupon for a discount with my business card.
    I see some others from Canada on here already. Please email me if you’re interested in net working.
    Thanks everybody!

    Mad Joe Martin in Wichita Falls stole it from me and I’ve never talked to him since. Why the hell cant a guy be happy with just the one cool Moniker Mad Joe?

    Welcome from Australia,
    If you have happy kids then you have done well, Kids are brutally honest and will tell you if you suck lol

    Don't be surprised if you slowly try other 'canvases' . . airbrushing seems to do that to people. they start with one goal in mind and slowly drift off onto other ideas... I know I did :D
