TYPE: Piercing and Tattoo parlour
SLURL: Outbreak (90,120,37)
OVERVIEW: Tattoos and piercings have become a major place for personal expression. Ink has meaning: The images chosen, the colours, the placement, all of it combine to create a canvas as insightful as anything in a frame. Metal is its own expression in its complexity, coverage, and design choice of the jewelry. Especially with people banding together, both ink and piercings create a way for the groups to form an identity, just like military men and women, bikers, and gangs would all get similar markings or piercings to show that they stood together. I plan to engage the city by running regular events. Discount days on given days of the week (Mondays discount ink of a certain size/choice, Wednesday discount piercings of certain types, Fridays group discounts). I will also encourage my employees and, myself, reach out to other groups to foster roleplay. Interactions with other businesses for goods (needing regular mainland runs for pigments, needles, autoclave parts), or even to bring in bodies that like to display themselves (Such as dancers in the Pub, or Dolls in the Doll House).
EXPERIENCE:Businesses are where the stories begin. They, like factions, serve as the foundation for a person's identity in Outbreak. I enjoy being able to help create those stories and expand the interactions on the island, be it between individuals or organizations. Having ran groups and administered Sims, I understand that a backdrop is a necessity for ongoing stories. Bringing in another angle from which a character can begin, or even continue to practice their unique skills, opens up even more avenues for continued roleplay. People form personal relationships with their piercers and tattooers, creating ongoing roleplay stories. As well, new employees can engage in apprentinceships with experienced tattooists and piercers, allowing them to build their characters, hone their skills, and create their own ongoing arcs as they become more proficient and create clientele.
