Hey guys :D

I hope this community's still active- I'm really curious about the all-girl punk band that was featured on the show last week (11/6, i think).
It sounded like Syvette? Svet? Something like that, anyway. I've tried googling different spellings and stuff, but can't seem to find anything.

In case this helps- the chick had long, hot pink hair on top with black hair underneath, and she was getting a tattoo of Medusa by Kim.

So tonight was the second season's opener.


Personally, I really hope that Hannah comes back, but I can totally understand why she wouldn't. And it looks like next week's episode will show Pixie getting the ax as High Voltage's manager/receptionist. Maybe she had a good reason to go to Mexico for a week? Who knows, maybe we'll find out next week!

And was I the only one hoping that Kat was pregnant?! I was ready to jump up and down until she said JUST KIDDING.

On a typically late Friday night, Kat Von D attempts to go where tattoo artist has gone before — to ink the most people in a 24 hour period!

A line of people queued around the block last night hoping to get tattooed by the LA Ink resident hottie. Numbers where limited to a first come first serve basis with a 400 person limit. Many where turned away dissapointed as the diehard had been waiting since 5 pm the day before.

Kat was required to follow the Guiness Book guidelines and was restricted to only one tattoo design which was an elaborate ‘LA’ tattoo and cost each person $20. The proceeds of all the tattoos and merchandise sales were being donated to ‘Vitamin Angels’ a charity helping prevent blindness in children in Africa.

If you had a chance to go, I'd love to see your tattoos!

So, we have been talking about setting the record for the most tattoos done in a 24 hour period by one person, since the Miami Ink days, and FINALLY we are gonna do it, here, in Los Angeles, at my tattoo shop!

I know it's short notice, but here's your chance to help me out AND be part of history! I'm gonna be tattooing for 24 HOURS STRAIGHT, and I'm aiming at doing 400 tattoos! I'm pretty sure with the help of everyone, this can be an amazing and fun success!

HERE ARE THE RULES Guinness sent us:

1. Each tattoo is to measure a minimum of 1.25 x 3 inches.
2. Each tattoo must have a minimum of 2 colors.
3. The attempt must be overseen by 2 independent persons, with experience in tattoo techniques. Only tattoos satisfying these 2 judges count towards the total.
4. The event is continous. Rest breaks may be taken at will, but THE CLOCK DOES NOT STOP.
5. The record is not limited to 1 tattoo per person. (so you can get more than 1 tattoo)
6. Theres is no restriction on the location of each tattoo.
7. The total should not include any tattoo not completed at the end of the time period.
8. All people getting tattooed must be 18 with ID.

So with that in mind, I'm gonna be doing an "LA" tattoo logo that was approved by Guinness, on anyone who wants to be a part of this!!


I'm gonna be doing the tattoos for $20, just to cover costs of material, and its gonna be on a first come first serve basis! (No appointments, JUST SHOW UP!)

You gotta be 18 WITH ID to come to this event. Normally, all ages are welcome, but due to Guinness rules, no one under the age of 18 will be able to come into the shop during the event.
I'm hoping a lot of people will be able to show up!! As you guys already know, I'll need at least 400! So there may be a line, but considering how small the "LA" tattoo is, (each one is estimated to only take about 2 to 3 minutes), the wait should not be long!
Because I'll only have 24 hours to attempt this, it's important to fill the time slots from the hours of 3am to 10am! Im pretty sure those will be the prime hours with the less waiting time, and would TOTALLY HELP ME OUT if there's any night owls out there that are down to get tattooed at that time as well!

Begins NOON (Sharp!)
and goes straight through,
until NOON the next day!

High Voltage Tattoo/LA Ink
1259 N. La Brea Ave.
W. Hollywood, CA 90038

Obviously, during that 24 hour period, we will be closed to regular walk ins, but will go back to our daily schedule the next day!

If everything goes smoothly and I can set this record, it'll be so awesome to share this moment with the 400 of you who helped me out!! This episode will air in the second season of LA INK!

From Kat's Myspace Bulletin:

I need people in a quick scene for LA Ink TODAY!
Body: Hey guys!

I know its last minute, but we are shooting a scene in the Los Angeles area today. I need to have some people in the background of this bar scene partying with me!

The bar we are shooting is super rad! its all Mexico 1950's style. Theres like a ridiculous amount of top-shelf tequila there, and its all decorated with Mexican wrestling masks, and black velvet paintings. SOOO RAD!

I know it sounds funny, but it was totally last minute!

So if youre in the LA area, and have a day off or whatever, and are OVER 21, please come by!! If not, wish me luck!!


Kat Von D
