Horror and Ink

The annual Tattoo and Horror festival is an event I look forward to every year. It is a pretty big event year after year. Horror stars come and sign autographs, take pictures answer questions, while in another hall the buzz of tattoo machines fill the air. I don't know a thing about horror films, but I love to watch the kids go gaga over some of these "stars." The guy that played "Leather Face" just looks like a regular dude to me, but apparently, he is really something special.

Here are what I thought were the highlights

  • I got tattooed at the show for the first time.

  • The belly dancing show never gets old

  • Teddy did 18 piecings, so he can pay his rent this month

  • Tom Zombie sang from memory the forth verse of the beloved hymn "Just as I am" (long story)

  • I gave a dude $5 to take a picture with him and his fakeness

  • I mistakenly called this bald girl with tattoos on her head "man"

  • I feel good about missing Sideshow Benny hanging irons from his scrotum.

Boy vs Tree

Saturday Wyatt decided to chop down a dead bradford pair tree in our yard. I have no idea why. It is strange because usually he thinks "manual labor" is a Mexican President. He made it about half way through Saturday and was determined on Sunday morning to go out in the rain and finish the job. We persuaded him to wait until the rain quit on Sunday afternoon. Mission accomplished.
