pirate slingin' ink

As a business owner I'm hoping I can get it stable enough to keep me in fuel and staples while i'm cruising ...i am also one of the artists so I can work in each port tattooing and piercing all the cruisers and locals who are interested. I have a tattoo and piercing studio btw... sound reasonable?

As long as you can do it under the table you probably have a good business. But with the practice being regulated you may be taking a chance??? You probably have a better feel for that one. There is a decent book called Financial Freedom Afloat That would probably be useful to you...

You could do well in New Guinea. They're really into that stuff. At lease, they use to be. Of course they use to eat people too.

I didn't mean to imply that you are not running a good business, just that when you are in a regulated trade, every government wants their two cents and a pile of paper work. It makes it hard to practice above board when you are on the move.

clarifying

i wasn't under any impressions that you were inferring anything...just realized I didn't clarify things..you SHOULD be wary of itinerant tattooists (tattooists in general really ...were a shady bunch..hahah) until You have checked 'em uot for cleanliness and all....I am pissed no one laughed at my chicken joke...
