Hello, this is Rob, your friendly Tattoo Lou's blogger. Recently, my girlfriend Crystal and I headed to Lou's in Deer Park so that she could fulfill her dream of getting a nose piercing. Well, not a dream really, it just sounds more inspiring that way. This then, is her quest, her journey, her trial of fire, as one woman seeks to realize a longing buried deep within her soul, as….ok, she's giving me that look. This is what happened:
This is Crystal; normally sure, confident, and as self-possessed a young woman as can be found in the farthest reaches of this great land.
Here, however, as she sits in Tattoo Lou's about to get her face stabbed, her countenance bears a questioning, uneasy gaze, as if to say to her boyfriend documenting the event "I'm sitting in Tattoo Lou's about to get my face stabbed! Why exactly didn't you talk me out of this??"
My only response could possibly be that as a sure, confident, self-possessed young woman as can be found in the farthest reaches of this great land, who am I to question her choices? No, this is happening. She thought long and hard about it, and now is her moment of truth, her test, her crucible, her escape from Shawshank, her white whale breaching against the decks of her Pequod….and there's that look again. More next week!
What will become of Crystal? Will she follow through with the piercing? Will she cower in the face of a needle…in her face, or will she hold strong and make it through?? Will ninjas attack, forcing Lou's employees to fend them off with their piercing tools and tattoo guns, which would be awesome but clearly a violation of health and safety standards?? Tune in next week to find out in Episode 2 of the epic saga: My Girlfriend Goes to Lou's!!
