Feel The Need For Speed Watching Top Gun At West Village, Celebrate The Women Texas Film Festival And Do The Meat Wave At Double Wide.

If you’re feeling the itch for some fresh ink but aren’t sure what tattoo you want, the folks over at Elm Street Tattoo have a solution: leave it to chance.

They’ve set up a tattoo design dispensing vending machine. Whatever design comes out of the little capsules, the shop artists will ink onto you for the bargain price of only about $100. So feel free to stop by the shop and grab a design and quick tat if you’re walking through Deep Ellum tonight.

But if an impromptu tattoo isn’t necessarily the adrenaline fix you’re looking for today, then perhaps one of these happenings will do the trick for you.
