Tattoo Highway Airs Tonight
In about an hour, Tattoo Highway, the latest in tattoo tv -- essentially Inked's Thomas Pendelton on a bus-- will air on A&E (10PM EST), and I need to decide if I want to give up that hour of my life for anticipated snarky blogginess or simply do what I usually do on a Wednesday night at 10pm: Watch The Cougar, drink a bottle of wine, and PedEgg my feet.
Of course I could DVR it, but then think of all the lTwitter potential if I watch it live. I'm on the fence but feeling the pressure after reading show reviews on Deadbolt and Daemon's TV -- the latter actually having seen an episode.
Plus, even TV Guide wants me to watch -- taunting me with its super-tough tattoo logo. [What happened to my beloved weekly that featured the Golden Girls, and George and Weezy on its covers?]
The PR machine behind the show also contacted us, but no special logo for them here! They were quite lovely, offering prizes to all of y'all, but I asked to see an episode in advance before I could promote it and they sent me a trailer of a few seconds. Not good enough. Any time I've put something up that I haven't tried and tested, y'all have called me on it. I've learned my lesson. But, alas, you get no swag.
They recently put up clips of the show on the site, and it follows the same tattoo tv format: someone gets sick and gets a tattoo; someone loses a loved one and gets a tattoo; someone stops doing drugs and gets a tattoo. I may PedEgg my feet. What tattoo does that warrant?
If you watch it, feel free to post your comments here. I'll start opening the bottle and see how I feel at 10.
