WIN A $50 TATTOO GIFT CERTIFICATE!!
It’s true! Inspired by how fun and awesome our retail blog giveaways have been, we’re doing a tattoo giveaway (okay, not a whole tattoo. But $50 off of one!). In celebration of our gorgeous brand-new gift certificates by Keegan & Meegan we’re giving one of them to you for free! 
What you have to do is: 
1) Follow our Tumblr
2) Comment on this post letting us know how much you love us and want the prize (if you’re already following us, just let us know)
3) Sit back and wait! When we get to 250 followers, we’ll pick a winner! 
Gentlemen, start your engines!!

Only my favorite tattoo shop ever! I remember when I got my first tattoo! Icon was still at it’s old location. I was 18 and it was halloween, I made my friend come with me and I was so excited to finally get the tattoo I had been wanting! Now when you google “x files tattoo” mine is the first to come up!

Melanie made my first tattoo experience so much fun and very memorable! I have gotten 2 (one in progress by the ever talented Clio Sady) more tattoos since October 2008. 
My favorite thing about this tattoo is sometimes people don’t know what it’s from and sometimes people recognize it right away and we talk about how much we love the x files! It’s always a big conversational piece!
Anywhoo, thanks so much Melanie (and Clio)! And I will defiantly be getting another tattoo with one of the icon ladies!
