Once a week or so, my hometown newspaper, the Greeley Tribune, puts together what they call their Cop Log. Basically they compile the weirdest stuff that the cops encounter over the last month or so in Greeley and Evans, and print it for the world to see. Today, it's the story of the guy with a "ZZ Top beard" having an illegal tattoo party.
Nov. 10th, 10:30 p.m.: Police received a call from the 1400 block of 10th Avenue. The caller reported a "tattoo party" taking place in a nearby apartment; he said he knew this was illegal because he was a tattoo artist. The caller said the man hosting the party was a large, bald man with a "ZZ Top beard."
I had no idea that getting a tattoo from someone in an apartment was illegal. I mean, it may not be a good idea, but you get sick or your arm falls off, it's not really affecting anyone else. Plus I feel like anyone with a beard like that would be a pretty legit tattoo artist... Just sayin'!
