Cruising by the House of Blues while gambling at Mandalay Bay, we stopped short at one shop we never expected in a casino: Starlight Tattoo. Not only is this tat parlour pristine, but it is filled with highly polished artists, like owner Mario Barth, who touts three different types of tattooing (traditional Samoan, traditional Japanese, and Western-style). We don’t have any tattoos yet, but we promised if we hit a slot jackpot while in the vicinity we would get a tiny star to commemorate the fruitful event. Now what are the odds of that?
