Big Gus Demented,
Reality program that spotlights the touching personal stories and saucy confessions of patrons, along with the sizzling celebrity exploits and the dramatic mounting tensions amongst the store's colorful staff, as the worlds first tattoo parlor inside a major Las Vegas casino resort opens its doors to the public.

I see all these reality shows coming on the air, left and right. This is a documentary type where they go into a new business venture. There are shows like "Blow Out" and "The Casino". I don't like hair saloons, but it was interesting to see how people dealt with a new business. I only saw a couple of episodes. I guess I lost interest because I have no interest in that business. Then with the casino show, I thought I might have more of an interest. I did, although the show itself wasn't very good. I just feel it lacks the realness a reality/documentary show should have. Tonight I accidentally stumbled on A&E's new series "Ink'd" and I was totally excited.
I am an artist and I love tattoos. I have a bunch of tattoos myself and frequently incorporate tattoos in my illustrations. I am actually debating getting into the business. I was thinking, finally they got something I will like. I can get the type of show I like with a topic I love.
Tonight was the first episode and it was really cool. The concept of the show is it's the first tattoo parlor in a casino in Vegas. We get to follow John Huntington and his staff in this new venture. We already had two of the employees fired. One was a tattoo artist and the other was a receptionist. We got to see tons of celebrities at the grand opening and John's wife gave birth to a baby girl. The show seems cool so far and because I have an interest in the content of the show, I feel it will be a good ride. I hope the show stays interesting and maybe it will make me really consider a career in tattoos. If anything, I hope I am able to go get ink very soon. It has been a whole 8 months since my last tattoo, which is way too long. lol.
Check out the show. It is too early to see if it will be a good one, but I will continue to check it out.
I just wanted to add, I haven't see this on since I wrote this comment. I had no indications that it was meant to be a special rather than a series. It was enjoyable and I hope they can bring it back as a series.
