THE STORY
***********************************
It's a frosty morning as you park your chopper and dismount. You pull out your key ring with a small skull pendant from the pocket of your leather jacket and unlock the door of a shady tattoo parlor. Your boss is on the road with his Harley, so it's up to you to manage the shop for the day! Just a few minutes later the first hot babes and brawny dudes start entering the shop. You'll have to prove yourself as a tattoo artist by painting the most perfect tattoos from their chosen templates. The faster and precise you are, the more satisfied theyll be and the more hard cash they will pay! But be aware that even those who are appear to be tough on the outside can be big wussies, so pay attention to their pain threshold! Too much pain could ruin your reputation and lead to an empty cash register!

This sorta looks like the tatoo minigame in GTA Chinatown Wars - which I'm really excited about. Anyway, I'll try the lite, spent a bit too much on games this week.

This is actually pretty fun. I've only played through once for about 10 minutes, but I enjoyed it. The graphics and art design are wonderful. The controls seem fine, but the bigger your fingers are the less accurate you may be. It's like a combination of a drawing game with small time management elements. I'll post more impressions when I've had a chance to play more...so far the biggest negative seems to be a lack of a career mode, which this game kind of screams out for.

I'm kind of surprised this isn't garnering more interest. It's a unique concept with some solid gameplay and great art design. Are people even trying the lite? Maybe there's not much to the lite...or maybe I'm in the minority in thinking it's cool. Either way, I'd like to know. Anyone try this?

I think it looks cool, but not $3.99 cool. Gonna try the lite now.

And no career mode makes this uninteresting to me...lite or no lite.

There are online leaderboards, which help, but a career mode update would certainly be welcome. Honestly, the 30 different designs isn't an issue to me. The best I've been able to do in one session is 12, and besides this is what real tattoo artists deal with. How many tribal armbands and tramp stamps to you think they have to do a week? I think it's def worth 4 bucks, but then again, I'm apparently the weird one who thinks that 99% of the apps are underpriced to begin with.

If you're a talented enough tattoo artist you don't ever have to do the same tattoos over and over
