Support Local!

If and when you come down to the tattoo convention, I need you to do me a huge favour by showing some love to our local artists. There are 17 made-in-Singapore studios that need your support. Even if you decide not to get inked by them, pick up their name cards or stickers, chit chat a little and if you are really in a loving mood, buy one of their t-shirts. They've got some neat looking tees!

The 17 local studios are...

8 Volts Tattoo Studio
Art Addictive Tattoo
Body D├ęcor Tattoo & Piercing
Dream Body Art
Elvin Tattoo
Exotic Tattoos
Fly Back Tattoo
Imagine Tattoo Studio
Ink-credible Tattoo Studio
IN's Tattoo
Kustoms 7 Tattoos
Marc Pinto's Primitive Tattoo
Shark Tattoo Studio
Skin Label Tattoo Studio
Think Tattoo
Visual Orgasm Tattoo
William Tattoo Studio

  2. Supermarkets
    NTUC has 90
    Cold storage group has 86, cold storage 35, shop n save 49, jason's 2 (Raffles city and 1 other)
    Sheng siong supermarket has 23

        None in expensive rent cbd area


    Petrol stations
    Caltex 34
    Exxonmobile 68
    SPC 38
    Shell 65


    Based on this, can estimate that more than 50 branches means within walking distance e.g. McDonalds 119 7-11 >300 Shell 65 ExxonMobile 68 Community centre 106 DBS+POSB 81 UOB 57 OCBC 53 KFC 74 NTUC 90 Cold storage group 86 Post office 63
    Can estimate that a short ride away, even by bus is 18 to 35 branches e.g. polyclinic 18 bus interchange 22  swimming complex 24 library 22 cinemaplex 31 burger king 41 long john silver 31
    Can estimate that rare things need travel long distance e.g. archery outdoor range 90m 4 in sg, telok blangah, punggol, bukit panjang/choa chu kang, sembawang area

    Thus, if want tattoo shop to be every where, must have more than 50 shops in singapore.

  3. Lastly, can increase the posting size limit ? Each post max 3000 characters so I must split into 2 posts.
