Have you ever wondered how Tattoo Parlors get their ink?

Apparently it’s not from the UPS man.

Neither have I until I saw the exciting transaction take place outside of the S.T. Tattoo Studio
off of Venice Blvd and Boise Ave.

Here ‘s how it plays out:

1.  A van shows up outside of the parlor.

2. An employee of the parlor runs out of the parlor and greets the driver.

3. The driver then opens up the side door of the van.

Ok, now this is where it gets good:

When he slides opens the car door, there are shelves of ink bottles everywhere!


Christmas inside a van!

Then the tattoo parlor employee picks out the colors, signs and invoice and voila!

The driver slides the door shut and zooms off to his next tattoo parlor.

And that is how tattoo ink gets transported to tattoo parlors.
