This is Oak at Painted Temple Tattoo in Provo,
Utah and tattoo lingo. I guess there’s lingo in our world of tattooing you wouldn’t really
hear in other worlds or other businesses or societies and whatnot. There is, it’s funny,
the “tramp stamp” is the tattoo above the butt, basically, also we call it the “ass
crown”. Not too many tattoo lingos you know. There’s a bunch of rednecks out there calling
tattoo machines “tat guns” or “I want to get some tats done” or some “tacks” and they’re
kind of touched in our world I guess you could say. Not too much lingo that’s different.
There’s body parts, you know, epidermis, dermis, you know that involves the skin, how deep
you’re going to go in the skin. There’s not too much different, just different funny names
for different parts of the body. There’s the “ditch” that’s this part of the arm right
here, and that’s about it.
