2/16/08 RED CARPET EVENT@ HOB:STARLIGHT TATTOO GRAND OPENING!



I have been to a few red carpet events in Vegas like the Oceans 13 one with Brad Pitt and George Clooney at the Palms(where I actually got to meet Brad and get him to autograph a photo of him!) but I was a fan/looky loo the last few times. This time I got a pass for the photo-pit at the STARLIGHT TATOO grand opening party, and got to be an actual papparazzi, like in Hollywood!! I have to tell you...it was exciting as it was nerve wracking! All the photographers are jumping in your way and video guys are right in front of the celebs. You really gotta be fast or you can miss a shot! I am not complaining...it was a blast!! I had so much fun and got to chat with a few clebs and its always nice to get a hug from my ol buddy Criss Angel. Speaking of Criss, he was sporting a new really furry beard and a new girlfriend who is Miss Nevada,who Criss proclaimed is going to win miss USA or was it Universe? He said he did in fact get premonitions. Well I have seen women come and go since his split with his wifey,like Cameron Diaz,who lasted like a minute, so I see this one lasting at least a few months.....
Criss Angel and Mario Barth,the owner Starlight Tattoo.



Quite a few rock stars and porn stars were walking the red carpet and even a few movie and TV stars were there...
Like Ice T!!! He is too fuckin cool!!



This is Tattood Millionaries who found me on myspace and asked me to come out and play!! Crazy guys! They played at the party...


Then we had the beautiful Tera Patrick pose for us with her new tattoo she had just recieved from some famous asian tat artist.... she said he was very gentle,when I asked her if it hurt.

She posed with her tatted out man of Biohazard fame,Evan Seinfeld and they looked really hot together...

We had the stunning Vivica Fox pose for us and I asked her if she was going to get a tat and she replied, I already have 11...we laughed and said none we could see...

Evan's new band called the Spyders cruised out to pose for us...they played the party too...


Dave Navarro came out with DJ Skribble to say hey to us...Dave is so hot!!!


Then we had the gorgeuos but too skinny Shauna Sands come out and strut her stuff...


The band of violinists and beautiful triplets,Alizma came out and looked amazing....even though they are identical,they all have different looks...


Ice, Ice Baby, Vanilla Ice came out and sported some tats from Starlight...he said he was still rocking!


The Barth Family with their adorable son.....he was so cute!!


It was incredible to be there to see the stars come out!! The tattoo shop looks killer and I am sure it will be successful. Give it time, I predict a new reality show done from there like Inked and LA Ink...
