Elm Street Tattoo's Friday the 13th Marathon Video
Last Friday, Oliver Peck held his annual and infamous Friday the 13th marathon tattoo special at his Elm Street Tattoo studio and The Dallas Morning News was there to cover it [video above]. It's an interesting look at the melee with classic quotes from Peck, including talk of the myth and lore behind "13" tattoos and why he's been doing this marathon for years: "I just love gimmicks. I love partying. I love tattooing, and I just put it all together. [Sailor Jerry Rum helped with the partying.]
Peck was also in the news for his recent opening of True Tattoo studio in LA (which he purchased in January). Gossip blogs particularly loved his shit talking against ex-wife Kat Von D, saying that his studio will "make real tattoos" as opposed to Kat's "gimmicky tourist tattoos" close by.
I thought he just loved gimmicks.
