The Fuller Brushman, he ain't

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Some women in Springfield are regretting their decision last week to get a tattoo from a door-to-door tattoo salesman. At least one person had to be hospitalized and the others face serious health risks. [KMBC-TV]

A door-to-door tattoo artist with a homemade tattoo gun. What could possibly go wrong?

Well, at least it's cheaper than buying a Kirby...

You know, I think this is just a case of lazy reporting. Where are all the satisfied customers in this story? The guys down at the Weedy Creek Correction Facility, for example? Just look at the detail in the work! This is just another example of that Liberal media trying to undermine good, honest free enterprise.

home-made tattoo guns are fairly common, most professional tattoo artists build them themselves. door-to-door though? unless he carries around an autoclave, it's a safe bet you'll get a topical infection at best, hepatitis or hiv at worst.

Scott, you still owe us that post about your exploits as a vacuum salesman. We haven't forgotten, you know.

Darwin lives. Honestly. How could you possibly think this was a good idea?

I was promised a Red Rose on my skin, but....not this type of red rose.
