Of course, the challenge comes with a few rules:
- Each tattoo must be 1.25 x 3 inches
- Each tattoo must have a minimum of two colors
- A person MAY receive multiple tattoos
Swan says to earn the title, he'll have to average a tattoo every minute and a half.
"We really need the hours in the middle of the night to be filled. So, calling all bartenders and restaurant workers who get off at 2 a.m.: Go directly to Broken Art (with every drunk patron you can bring) and get your $20 record-breaking tattoo," Swan said on his website.
Because Swan is working on a tight time frame, he's only offering four designs: a bat; a heart with wings; the letters "LA;" and the number "13" (for Friday the 13th). He's already posted the designs online, so you can start to plan your next tattoo.
The first tattoo costs $20 with $10 for each additional design.
So far, about 500 people have already registered, LAist reported.
"I can't beat this record without everyone showing up. I want to do around 900 tattoos in 24 hours. I can do it. I just need you," Swan said.
