Easy Come, Easy Go:The Story of Pooptionary

Hello Pooptionary, Good Bye Pooptionary.
Russ Abbott is full of brilliant ideas; sometimes they come out smoothly, sometimes they’re a bit rough.  And sometimes, he doesn’t give a courtesy flush.  We ask him to, but seeing as he IS the boss around here and we’re really into recycling… it’s hard to make it a habit.  Long story short, Russ Abbott decided to start an Instagram page for “Pooptionary”.
The basic gist of it was people using the basic free form of their excrement to make a drawing, and then add it to the  “Pooptionary” Instagram page.  It’s like the Rorschach test of feces inspection.  The idea and the page went nuts and as soon as Russ made a couple posts, people were submitting their poop inspired drawings (the laxative companies can send the royalty check any day now).
By the time 8 hours, and as many hundred of flushes had passed, the page had over 800 followers.  It could have been viral poo. But there was trouble in poo-land. Somebody flagged the account.  At first, Instagram only took down a couple of photos, then the whole feed disappeared.  Russ was victim to a very vague letter, and the general idea was that they thought the page was shitty.
So long for now,  Pooptionary, we’ll be sure to visit when we need ideas about the next I&D coffee table book… We’re throwing around the title “Drawing Part Deuce.”

The birth of the blog was hot and laborious–but the Ink&Dagger  team pushed through.  Sweaty and frazzled, we present for your welcome our little slice of tattoo experience. Welcome to  the home of Atlanta’s finest tattooers and all the weird shit we do and the cool people who let  us do it to them–Ink&Dagger Tattoo Parlour.
It is our intent to open up the doors of Ink&Dagger so you (dear reader) too can experience the phenomenon that is our modest tattoo shop. We’d like to use this space to get to know you, and for you to get to know us.
Tattoo is a collaboration between artist and client, your ideas and body and our experience, art , and execution; this blog would like to reflect that collaboration. Plus, we have lots of cool shit to show you.
Fair warning… things can get a little weird and wild and will definitely get silly. Comments and feedback are encouraged, spam and jerks can write a letter to Santa.
