A STICK AND POKE TATTOO KIT



Written by Robert Foster

As the Urban Outfitters-ification of 'alternative' culture continues, it was only a matter of time before someone shoved some cheap medical supplies in a nice cardboard box and called it a tattoo kit. 

Sure, you can probably get all this stuff seperately for a lot less money, but this makes a much nicer birthday present for someone than all the components bought seperately and bundled together in a Boots bag, and that's probably the point. 

Really, though, the best part of these guys' operation is the bit on their site where they have a go at the precious, self important tattoo artists who get cross with stick'n'poke people for not being part of their special culture. If you've spent much time with tattoo artists, you'll know their god complexes and snobbery know no bounds, and it's nice that someone is set on winding them up. 

That said, as soon as they used the sentence, "some people would rather stay home in bed to stick and poke with a friend over some freshly squeezed OJ and Tegan and Sara playing on the gramophone." I was like, fuck these pricks.

Whatever, though. You can buy these kits here.

Best tattoo artist in the country = Duncan X, btw.
