Aug. 10 (UPI) -- A tattoo shop in Dallas is offering a solution to customers who don't want to agonize over what design to get inked -- random tattoos from a vending machine.

At Elm Street Tattoo, ink-seekers put a coin into a vending machine, turn the knob and get a plastic bulb with a tattoo design inside. Whatever the design is, that's the tattoo you get. And it only costs $100.


"They're all good ones -- old-school snakes, devil heads," a shop employee named Boogie told the Dallas Observer.

Boogie also said customers are getting a bargain.

"All of these tattoos I would price out between $160 and $180 ... maybe $250," he added.

But if the design that comes out is not to one's liking, they can get another spin at the machine for an extra $20.
