    What the heck? "The tattoo gun is ready"????? Hmmm, dear Prison Inmate Weekly I would like to question in the strongest terms your recommendation of the DIY tattoo gun featured in this week's edition. I promised Javier a tattoo gun. He didnt get it. Now I am in pain. I blame you. Watch out for me.
