The Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach, CA would like you to show your love for them by getting all tattooed up under a promotion called the ‘Ink and Stay’ package. Of course, you’ll be ‘suitably’ rewarded for your show of love.
Package includes a $100 voucher for a tattoo from Hotel Erwin’s acclaimed, in-house tattoo and graffiti artist Norm, plus Lubriderm lotion and ice-pack for healing, bottle of tequila to numb the pain, and a chance to opt for temporary tattoos - in case you chicken out in the tattoo parlor.
You also stand to get yourself a $500 bonus if you get a tattoo that says “I HEART HOTEL ERWIN.” Not sure what the love of your life will have to say about that - but you might save some of that tequila to prove that you were too drunk to know what you were doing.
The newly re-launched and hip Hotel Erwin, overlooking the Venice Beach Boardwalk and located 200 ft from the beach, has quickly become a popular hangout for the artsy crowd in Venice Beach and their patrons and admirers.
The Hotel even commissioned Norm – the aforementioned graffiti and tattoo artist from the famed Spotlight Tattoo in los Angeles, to paint some art (see video) at the hotel’s entrance. And a classic breakfast spot (HASH) and rooftop open-air lounge (HIGH) at the hotel add to the Venice Beach experience.
The Ink and Stay offer is valid until Dec 31, 2009.
