I was wandering around the festival when I came across a “tattoo parlor” with complimentary airbrush tattoos, sponsored by Honda.
It was built under a wooden frame with a roof, barrels around the base and cacti surrounding it to create a rustic atmosphere. The station also had a Honda CR-V It was given out to anyone who entered the draw.
It was right next to the station. Honda and Miller Lite StagesThey offer the opportunity for anyone waiting to see some acts while they wait.
Although I waited in line for 40 minutes, it was well worth it because Megan Finney, one of the artists was available to talk with me. Megan, along with the others artists, had to attend around an hour of training to get ready for ACL. These are snippets from our conversation.
You were curious how did this opportunity come about?
Megan: “Sarah over there, the very tatted lady. She’s my coworker and we work at a Thai-fusi restaurant called Loro on  South Lamar, an extremely local artist. She goes to all kinds of festivals everywhere and does this for fun.”
This is it?
Megan: “Yes, and my first ACL.”
What has been your overall experience?
Megan: “It’s been fun, I’m having fun. It’s a little hot, but I like it.”
You are a talented tattoo artist?
Megan: “Not at all.”
Are you going to have the opportunity to view artists too?
Megan: “Yes, and I love that they are surrounding us right now.”
What are your most exciting people to meet?
Megan: “Probably Paramore, kind of basic but I love Paramore.”
“What do your shift hours look like?”
Megan: “We work around eight-to-ten hours, and they let us pick shifts. It works around my day job and all that.”
