No more bets please! Drop the cards, leave the table and the casino, it is tattoo time! But for gamblers, game is an addictive and obsessive activity and Las Vegas is their capital... So, yes, they have gambling tattoos to show their passion and their fate... You know the old saying: gambling, alcohol and women are a man's ruin...

But who can turn away from such fun things ?! Gambling tattoos will certainly appeal to players, professional or passionate hobbyist.

Hope is all you have and money don't buy happiness... But it buys tattoos, which is quite the same! ;-)
