In the words of Sailor Jerry, cheap work ain't good and good work ain't cheap. So you could be excused for feeling sheepish about the caliber of work coming out of the free Sanrio tattoo parlor, which opened at Small Art Miami yesterday. But one of our writers sent in a photo of the tattoo he got on his leg last night, and it's pretty cute. He says he thinks it's Lanrey the raccoon. Anyone else get inked with a Hello Kitty character? Send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll feature the best. Get your own free Sanrio tattoos through Sunday.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
