And that my friends, is just the beginning.  I didn’t even get the chance to snap a photo of the woman grimacing in pain while getting her tattoo (I thought it best to leave that experience to you)!  That’s right!  They even do tattoos at Souk el Ahad..turns out there is an alternative to Hady Beydoun, albeit, not a very safe one!

You’ll have to see it to believe it.
