MONTREAL'S METH AND TATTOO PROBLEM
John, a Montreal area tattoo artist and piercer, got more than he bargained for after a recent binge of methamphetamine. A large tattoo of a cartoonish looking vagina sits planted in the middle of his forehead.
"I always told my friends I like to get a lot of pussy, this is not what I meant" John said.
John went on to describe what happened. "I admit it, I do have a speed problem. I went out to the local techno club to listen to some fat beats, snorted some speed, had a few beers, and the rest I don't remember. Two days later I woke up with a huge hangover and a vagina tattooed to my forehead."
John added "I know I did it to myself, my tattoo equipment was all out when I woke up, and it was done with expensive japanese ink."
"Ever since this happened, it's been hard to be taken seriously. This isn't like getting a spiderweb tattooed on your elbow or YOLO tattooed on your ass, you can cover that up. I can't cover this up"
Erin, John's girlfriend and fellow tattoo artist, explained "Meth is a big problem in the tattoo and piercing world, everyone does it. It's a bit of a dirty secret. I've done it myself. One time I tattoo'ed Tinkerbell riding an ostrich on my ankle while tweaking on speed, but this is much worse."
Erin went on to explain some of the reasons meth is so widely used in the tattoo community.
"We used to be a small, close-knit community. Only the punks and metal heads got tattoos. Now everybody wants them. I have 16 year old girls who are demanding sleeves and paying with their parent's credit cards. We need the speed to stay awake to handle all the work!"
"Piercings are up too. Ever since Justin Beiber got a piercing all the girls and boys want them. I'm working 18 hour days sometimes! I don't know how I could do it without speed"
John added "I think it's gotten out of hand. Montreal is now a hotbed of meth and tattoos. As much as I love both, I think things are going too far and it's time to slow down a bit. I know I learned my lesson this time"
Local tattoo artists and piercers have pooled together funds to help John remove the tattoo from his forehead, and are currently taking donations from anyone who would like to help.
