NC Tattoo Shop Could Be Basis for Reality TV Show

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- A tattoo shop in a North Carolina military city could be the setting for a reality television show.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported the director and executive producer at EGA Productions has shot a pilot for a show titled "Military Ink" that he hopes to sell to a network. Director and producer Lou Pizarro shot the pilot last week at Skin Art in Jacksonville.

Skin Art owner Allen Mishoe runs the shop with his father and brother. Mishoe contacted Pizarro about the possibility of a show based at Skin Art that would focus on U.S. troops and include information about where they had served, along with footage of the type of work they do.

Pizarro says he'll show the short pilot to interested networks, which he says include the Discovery Channel, History Channel and Military Channel.

    This just goes to show how much your opinion doesn't matter, guys. You're all so judgemental I don't see how anyone would even want to associate with you. If I was the producer of this show I wouldn't want any of you idiots watching it. As for everyone insulting tattoos, to each his own, and as far as I have read it's more a show about the military with some tattoo stuff thrown in, good job downrating the military.

    So, you choose to use a nickname that everyone associates with someone considered a freak in his day of biggest popularity, mohawk, gold chains, and all.... but people with tattoos are freaks. Alrighty. Those "uneducated and uncivilized tribes" as you ignorantly put it, know more about how to raise a child with respect, discipline, and responsibility that this sorry society does. Get over yourself. Again, if you don't like it, don't do it yourself.

    Its not just one or two tattoos. Its freaks with whole arms, face and everything else tattooed up. Then not to mention the idiots that stretch their earlobes out big as silver dollars, and rings through their lips. It used to be that you saw this stuff on National Geographic with some uneducated and uncivilized tribe out in the rain forest.

    If you dont like tattoos then just shut up!! No one is forcing anyone to get them or look at them and for the people who say tattoos are scuzzy or the trailer park must be getting boring. FYI just because you think that tattoo artist and the peole who have them are from trailer parks and are trouble you are sadly mistaken. I dont think Skin Art should be the shop they film at. Also another FYI I have over 30 tattoos and I am far from beiong from a trailer park or being a drunk or drug addict. I am tatted housewife who is on the PTO and loved by everyone who actually sees past the art on my body. You should never judge a book by its cover!!

    For all those that say tattoos are "scuzzy" or whatever...I have one tattoo in honor of my murdered daughter. If you call that "scuzzy"...then so be it. Classifying everybody into one category really shows your ignorance.

    to DePLane: What kind of nickname is that? That is just plain Stupid, you must be a dolt without a tattoo or a life story. I did not get my tattoos for anyone but me, if you don't like them don't look!!!!! Portable art is soooooo great! No frames, don't gotta put a hole in the wall or keep the dust and fingerprints off. I LOVE IT

    And for the record, I agree that the channels have gone downhill on programming. I like Pawn Stars though.

    It's personal choice, & in some cases is related to culture. Sadly some think that it means something bad about your personality or who you are. Native culture has always had forms of tattooing, on this soil & other places as well. People ooo and ahhh over that while sneering at the average housewife or businessman that wants to add something to their appearance. What's the difference? My personal taste does not run to cartoony, or grotesque, & I don't like mech or demonic things, but that's ME. I don't like any flash actually, but I am an artist so I don't need anyone to design for me. Flash is undesirable simply because someone else definitely has it, probably a lot of someones. Next time you talk to someone that has them though, try asking them WHY. Find out what it means to them. Unless it's a drunk stupidity moment, there is usually something very profound behind it. A good artist will insist on a sober client. If it's not a good artist, don't. If you don't like it, don't. Simple.
