In my opinion, there's nothing more fun than getting a new tattoo; it's a piece of art that you can look at whenever you want!

I got my first tattoo in Skippack Pennsylvania at a small shop called Liberty Tattoo when I first started working in radio.

Since then I've had the pleasure of getting tattoos where ever my career in radio has taken me, and each one marks a different point of time in my life.

I have an octopus on my foot, a snake on my knee, and on my one arm the date and coordinates that I met my wife, just to name a few.

If tattoos are in fact your thing, then you know New Jersey has a ton of great local shops.

Just looking through recommendations on the Toms River & Neighbors Community group, there are so many options.

Many people mentioned White Lotus Tattoo in downtown Toms River, other people highly recommend Gypsy Soul Tattoo off 37.

People also mentioned Eternal Images in Forked River as well as All Saints Tattoo.

As much as I love getting tattoos, sometimes the scariest part of the experience isn't the slight discomfort, but rather the price tag.

Of course, when it comes to tattoos you absolutely get what you pay for and you want to do your research before going under the needle, so to speak.

That being said, if you want a quality tattoo and don't want to break the bank, there's a flash event happening at a tattoo shop in Point Pleasant, if you're looking for a new piece.

For $100 dollars at Slingin' Ink Tattoo in Point Pleasant, you can select one of several pre-approved designs.

Slinging' Ink is where I got my last tattoo, and I love the way it came out.

The flash event is happening Friday, January 13th from the hours of 1 pm to 9 pm and is for walk-ins only.

They accept card payments, but be sure to tip your artist!
