Kat Von D Setting A New World Record!!
Wanna be a part of history simply by getting a tattoo?? Here’s the scoop. I signed into my myspace today, and was looking over my bulletins and noticed one by Kat Von D and a world Record. Apparently, she is going to attempt to break the world record for most tattoos done in a 24 hour period. Want more info? Look below. I copied and pasted her bulletin. So for all those who live near the L.A. area or for all those who wanna take a trek out there for this, here’s the info.

“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 continuos. 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 INVITING ALL OF YOU WHO ARE DOWN TO GET THIS TATTOO, TO COME HELP ME SET THIS WORLD RECORD!
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!)
HERE’S ALL THE SERIOUS STUFF:
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!
HERE’S ALL THE INFO YOU NEED!
