It’s a concept that may have people turning their heads, but for a tattoo shop owner in Melfort, Sask., it provides a “customer experience” like no other.

Matthew Reynaud, owner of Melfort Tattoo Shop, is offering customers the chance to test their artistic ability by becoming the tattooist.

“It’s basically an opportunity for people to come in and tattoo one another,” Reynaud said.

He said the idea came from a conversation with his wife.

“Her and I come up with some pretty random stuff, fall down the rabbit hole with each other, play back and forth and at the end of the conversation, we’re just like, ‘Wait a minute, that’s actually a good idea,’” Reynaud said.

The promotion has been offered for just over a week and Reynaud said it’s created quite the buzz around town.

“It was super cool. They just loved it and had a great time,” Reynaud said.

As for how long Reynaud will run this promotion for, he said there is no end in sight.

“As long as people want to do it, and people are interested, I’ll be willing to continue to set it up for people,” Reynaud said.
