Yes, you read that correctly. One New Hampshire tattoo artist is giving away FREE Trump tattoos to hardcore supporters of the candidate.
And no, I don't fucking get it either.
Bob Holmes, owner of Clay Dragon Tattoo Studio in Seabrook, New Hampshire is pretty damn stoked on national comb-over icon and presidential candidate Donald Trump. So stoked, in fact, that he is willing to sacrifice cold, hard cash for the opportunity to immortalize Trump in ink on his clients. That's right. In simpler terms: He's giving people Trump tattoos for free.
Proudly displaying a Trump campaign sign outside his studio, Holmes obviously has no problem speaking out about his support for the candidate. He's spoken to several news outlets, and has publicly bid the question: “No matter what way of life you have, no matter what you do for a living, how can you not like Donald Trump?”
Not gonna lie, Bob- not sure I trust someone who openly poses that question anywhere NEAR my body with a needle. Might be good for business to keep those kinds of questions to yourself from now on.
Holmes says that things have gotten pretty crazy around the shop since he made his big announcement. With a whopping 561 followers on Instagram and an average of about 5 likes per photo, his fame is reaching astronomical new heights with the amount of publicity he's received from his very public support of Trump.
Apparently, supporters near and far have been lining up around the block to receive their own Trump stamps. In fact, as of a few days ago- the count is up to an astounding 27 Trump fans now rocking new tattoos courtesy of Holmes and his crew. "Make America Great Again?" You got it. A stunning portrait of Donald Trump's face? No problem! That's right, ya'll. Just come on down to Clay Dragon Tattoo Studio and you could walk away with a stunning work of art like this, for FREE:
I mean, look at it! It's like looking at a photograph. Amazing.
(By the way- on a TOTALLY unrelated note- please remember that with tattoos, like most things in life, you get what you pay for. But I mean, again, that has nothing to do with this article. I am definitely not suggesting that if you're getting a tattoo -especially a PORTRAIT OF SOMEONE'S FACE- for free, that it isn't going to be good. I'm definitely not implying that these Trump tattoos are absolute shit and that I'm embarrassed that this is even a real thing that I'm writing about. No way.)
I especially admire the way that Holmes' has truly captured the essence of Trump in this particular tattoo- by casually substituting the stars in the American flag for dollar signs.
In addition to offering his complimentary services to Trump supporters, he has also graciously offered to tattoo the Candidate himself- free of charge. Because Trump is a real penny pincher, you know. Holmes is just trying to do the guy a favor. Whatta man.
I can 100% guarantee you that I will not be getting a Trump Stamp anytime soon, but I'm not gonna lie- I'm curious to know who would. What do you guys think?
