Tattoo parlor offering $49 49ers tattoos

Avid San Fran fans in the vicinity of Vallejo, California can put their melanocytes where their mouth is, for less money.

Allied Ink Tattoos & Piercings is offering 49ers-related tattoos for only 49 dollars.

We’re super excited, so we decided, ‘Why not?’” shop manager Andrew Moskito said.  “Normally, they’d be about $120.”

The offer is available only on Friday, February 1, from noon to 8:00 p.m.  One fan showed up this past Friday after misreading the ad; she nevertheless opted to pay full price to get a team logo permanently painted onto the back of her neck.

It’s fitting that the 49ers are doing this, given all the fretting about quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s arm tattoos from a sportswriter who apparently didn’t do a good enough job with his attention grab, because I now can’t remember his name.

Maybe I should have tattooed it onto my arm.

    I thought SF was supposed to be a high brow kind of town?

    That’s pretty cool…

    That thing in the photo is hideous.

    Tattoo parlor–The Factory of Future Regret.

    Love tats, but would NEVER put a corporate logo permanently on my body!

    That ink looks like a 7 year old did it. Hope that isnt a demonstration of their craft at this tattoo joint.

    I love the niners but i would never get a tatoo of it

  8. questforthesixthnotthelast2013 says: Jan 27, 2013 10:51 AM

    Maybe they could incorporate the niners logo to the state seal? Niner nation ya’ll

    I’m sure thats the image they would like to portray. They’re just as bad as the other team across the bay in Oakland. They put plain clothes police in the stadium and eject 100’s of fans for violence and trying to pick fights.

    “Supposed to be” is the operable phrase here.

    …and down the street, a Doctor will be offering $49 a finger to have it removed.

    How is that Romney tattoo guy doing ring about now?

  14. meatball13 says: Jan 27, 2013 11:27 AM

    Nothing says class more than a woman with the 49er’s logo tattoo’ed on her neck!

    This tattoo shop is obviously trying to take advantage of the “bandwagon-jumpers” and “casuals” who surface each year, just in time for Super Bowls.
    If the idea of a tattoo never entered your mind BEFORE a Super Bowl, it probably shouldn’t enter your mind now, either…
    Unless, of course, you’re Rex Ryan.

    I love tattoos…ill have a razorback one soon

  17. pettytom says: Jan 27, 2013 11:42 AM

    Only $49? I’m sure Ted Ginn thinks that’s kind of high. All he had to do before to get tats was give away a pair of shoes or pants and it was free.

  18. db105 says: Jan 27, 2013 11:52 AM

    Perfect example of the weak minded getting taken advantage of.

  19. rodgers419 says: Jan 27, 2013 11:55 AM

    The 49ers will enter another decade of mediocrity in just a few more years. Do you really want their logo on you?

  20. schmitty2 says: Jan 27, 2013 11:58 AM

    Based on that artwork I’m thinking 49 bucks is overpaying

  21. greymares says: Jan 27, 2013 12:08 PM

    I’m kind of worried my wife will buy anything that’s on sale.

  22. mi6agent says: Jan 27, 2013 12:45 PM

    It’s a brilliant marketing idea! Now the parlor got free advertising and national attention. The price is too cheap even Raiders fans would get one. The nightmare scenerio is when Raiders parents see this 49ers logo on their kids at the dinner table.

  23. abninf says: Jan 27, 2013 1:05 PM

    Tats were cool before they became mainstream. Now if you want to show your “individuality” then don’t get one.

  24. cosanostra71 says: Jan 27, 2013 1:11 PM

    haha… only in Vallejo!

  25. cowboyzshininstar says: Jan 27, 2013 2:03 PM

    The quality is probably really bad

  26. dd393 says: Jan 27, 2013 2:08 PM

    You get what you pay for.

    Guess it’s a good thing gold wasn’t discovered in 1869. But then again , we are talking about San Francisco.

  28. slickster35 says: Jan 27, 2013 2:38 PM

    Tattoos are for people that aren’t intelligent enough to express themselves verbally.

    “What’s this one, Grandpa, it’s all kind of saggy and faded, I can’t read it”.

    “Oh that one. It used to say ’49ers’ for the football team that once played here. 2013, last time they made it to the playoffs.”.

    “Did they win”.

    “Nah, but they lost by 49 points, so we got a good laugh from it for a few years….”.

    If Seattle had made it maybe some hospital would have offered c-sections for a c-note.

  31. rayguyreturns says: Jan 27, 2013 4:14 PM

    Bet if they threw in a slice of Brie, and wine tasting, they would sell a lot more.

  32. 75rockrasin says: Jan 27, 2013 7:01 PM

    I’m not sure, but that looks like the Latin King gang symbol above the 9 on the finger..

    Nice job guys……………

  33. fightingirish48 says: Jan 28, 2013 12:49 AM

    I was thinking the same thing about the tattoo of the crown.

    “We’re super excited, so we decided, ‘Why not?’”

    “Now, lets put our hands over our heads and dance”

    Shop manager Andrew Moskito said.

    I work at this shop and would like to point out, that although what is said in the article is completely true, no one at this shop did this tattoo. This should not be taken as representation of our artist’s work. I’m not entirely sure why this photo is associated with our shop.
