My tattoo artist, Orlando Romo, is part of a really cool new idea in tattoo shops. It's a tattoo shop and laser removal place all in one.

Emerald Empire, located at 1108 Main Street, opens June 3 in Lubbock.

I personally think Orlando is the best artist in town. Many of you have your favorites, but he's mine. And this new shop idea is really cool, especially since so many people have gotten bad ink in the past. Sometimes you just can't cover a bad tattoo. That's why this will be a laser removal and tattoo shop all in one.

Plus, for their grand opening they'll have live music, live glass blowing, food, art, and more. The grand opening is June 3 and is part of the First Friday Art Trail.
