I've never seen anybody actually doing tattoos on the playa and it seems like it'd be a really, REALLY bad idea to try it there. Its a very harsh and dusty environment. You know when you cut a piece of drywall and that fine dust gets everywhere?
â€¦that's the same stuff that's blowing around at 60 mph and invading every crack and cranny of you and your stuff.
And I can tell you that open wounds on the playa seem to just not heal, in fact the dust can crack your skin open from being so alkaline, and care should be taken to help avoid this problem. Therefore even getting a tattoo before the event seems a bad idea.
There are plenty of places on your way back from the playa that would love to help you get the perfect ink.
This is assuming someone actually was gifting tattoos with clean, sterile equipment in a safe environment with a health department permitâ€¦ which would NOT be issued for such a thing, Iâ€™m pretty certain.
