What makes a guitar player so desperate that they'll put a permanent, boring, random sticker on their guitar that advertises someone elses product and will most likely damage their instrument? Well according to life-long guitar player and founder of Strattoos Guitar Tattoos™ Chris DiNaso, the answer to that question is what propelled him to start Strattoos. According to DiNaso "guitar players want to change-up their look every so often and since they don't have any options, they'll put stickers on their guitar that don't look good and destroy the finish."
Boasting the catchy slogan "Own Your Own Look," Strattoos™ is making an impact in the guitar community by providing colorful variety of guitar tattoos that are tested safe for all guitar finishes and styles and are available for both electric and acoustic guitars. Every tattoo can be applied and removed in only seconds and offers everything that a regular tattoo offers only at a fraction of the cost and minus the permanence.

Transform Your Guitar Into a Work of Art

Well it's not the first time and probably won't be the last time that an individual has sounded the alarm for judgement day and/or the rapture of the church. Having listened to Herold Camping's family radio broadcast (with careful discernment) for many years, I have to admin that I was struck by his confidence and authoritative-like disposition regarding his end-time claims. However, with a little research and a few hours of time, even the most open minded student of the bible could see the fallacy of Mr. Camping's claims.
It's important as Christians that we take claims like his serious. Whether it's regarding escatology or some popular new movement within the church, it really boils down to one thing; holding it up against the truth of scripture. I don't have alot of respect for people who just automatically say the claims are bogus. On the other hand, I don't have alot of respect for people who blindly believe these kind of claims due to wishful thinking or just plain old ignorance. Roll up your sleeves and do the work

I took my son recently to see the new 3-D feature film Despicable Me. If you haven't seen it, I would highly recommend it! It's truly a must-see movie -especially if you have kids! It's basically about a super villain named Gru who is bent on pulling off the greatest hiest known to mankind....stealing the moon! This all comes about after rival villain Vector gains first-rate-criminal status for stealing the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Determined to regain the criminal throne, Gru wont rest until he pulls off the ultimate one-up by stealing the moon! To make a long story short, he ends up adopting three, cute, little orphan girls to do his dirty work. As you might expect, they end up stealing his heart and as the old saying goes "you never know what you got until it's gone." Gru looses the girls and while he's trying to steal the moon, he realizes that the girls are the one thing in life he can't live without.
Transformation. That's really what this movie is all about. It's really an old and familiar tale isn't it. Cinderella eventually becomes a princess, the Beast becomes a prince, Pinocchio becomes a real boy, and Gru turns from his evil ways and becomes a loving Father -someone the girls can finally look up to.
What is it about human nature that makes stories like these to resonate so deeply within our hearts? Hollywood obviously knows because they continue to make these kinds of movies and billions of dollars in revenue. I think thier on to something! Our hearts are gripped by stories of transformation. Why is that?
The wisest man that ever lived said that "God has set eternity in the hearts of man" Ecc 3:11. Could it be that there is something in our hearts, something eternal that God himself has placed there that whispers to our spirit "you could be more, you could become something that you never imagined you could be". Maybe that's why were so enchanted by these stories of transformation?
My business tag line is "transforming your guitar into a work of art". I can get excited about that. I'm having a blast building this business. I'm pretty passionate about anything and everything guitar! But how sad would it be if that's what defines my life. I want my life to have more purpose than that! I want this business to have more purpose than that! I want to step into the story that God is telling. A story full of twists and turns, danger and risk, a story where I (and you too) can become something that you never imagined you could be. That's something to get excited about!

I received a call yesterday from a girl named Amber who works for Nikki Sixx's national radio program called the Sixx Sense. The show airs Monday through Friday with 40 affiliates and over 1 million listeners! As you can imagine, that got my attention real quick; especially since I was the biggest Motley Crue fan you could ever imagine back in the day! I'm talking every square inch of wall space in my bedroom from 1984-1990 (including the ceiling) was covered exclusively with Crue posters! I think I was Nikki Sixx for Halloween like 3 years in a row! I was pretty sick! Anyway, she said that she saw the recent press release for Strattoos and wanted to talk to me about the show and some advertising opportunities. Of course I didn't hear anything else after "Nikki Sixx" and immediately assumed that she wanted to have me interview on the show about our rapidly growing company Strattoos Guitar Tattoos! Well, needless to say, I called her back and she was basically just trying to sell me some advertising spots on the show. She figured guitar tattoos was a perfect match for the show. After all, Nikke Sixx is just about all ink, no skin these days! Oh well, wishful thinking I guess. But who knows, maybe one day!
