The Derm Dude tribe headed south of the border to Mexico City for this episode of Think Ink and Drink .
We headed straight into double trouble with two of our favorite and muy caliente tattoo artists, Yatzil Ailzalde and Vanda Barbie.
Yatzil is a world-famous Ink Goddess known for her double vision/blur tattoo style, while Vanda is the former Mexican reality tv star with a diverse tattooing style that always includes sharp detail and badass tattoos.
This episode isn’t just a wild tattoo journey. Somewhere along the way, I get pulled into Mexico City's famous La Merced Market and get myself talked into eating poisonous tarantula tacos, insects of every kind imaginable and the ever so delicious rattlesnake soaked mescal.
Together we downed enough tequila to make Dwayne "THE ROCK" Johnson jealous.
And true gross fact…I had stomach issues for over a month after filming this episode and returning to America. (Could it have been the Tarantula Tacos? I'm certain it wasn't the tequila!)
P.S. Vanda had so much fun w the Derm Dude crew in Mexico City she showed up at our place in California for our Celebrity tequila tasting challenge. We KNEW we loved her for so many damn reasons!
Rock and Roll, Dudes
