Imperial Tattoo Company

    The shop has now been open for a little over a month and is doing well. We had a great grand opening and our business partner had got us a free morning radio spot on one of the top Houston radio stations that went really great. With the new location we are getting a lot more walk in tattoo business which is awesome but for some reason we are getting less piercing business because we are closer to the "cheaper" shops to put it nicely. Or we get the people that walk in and get all crazy loud and say "you can't just pierce my tongue fo 20 dollas!? I can just go down to (insert ghetto shop name here) and they will do it for $20!" hmm well no I can't just do it. It costs me more than that plus I know what I'm doing! so go on down to that other shop and I will be here to fix it in a week. We don't use cheap jewelry and we don't cut costs on sterilization or anything else. Sigh, but I'm not too worried because we will build up our reputation all over again in time. Anyway I need to get some sleep now because the bar next door to Imperial is having a huge crawfish cookoff in the parking lot all day tomorrow and we are doing a raffle and it seems like it will be another busy Saturday. whew :) I have also been getting a ton of free stuff and sponsored product parties in my free time that I will post about soon and how you can get in on it. so easy. I'm going to try to do my first giveaway soon too.


OMG why have I never tried Nutella before?!

I was recently given an opportunity to host a Nutella party from and they provided us with a large jar of Nutella spread. I was really excited because I have been seeing a lot of commercials for it lately but have never tried it before. At first I thought it would be kinda like peanut butter, but to my surprise it was beyond delicious and chocolaty  to no end. Mmmm I want more just thinking about it. The kids (and I) loved it most on a warm toasted waffle. So what is Nutella? you is a tasty unique spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa. Nutella® has no artificial colors or preservatives and does not contain or come in  contact with any peanuts. It can be used on a wide variety of breads. I have also seen some recipes online of it baked into muffins that I haven't tried yet but most certainly will try in the future.
