Can you be 15 and get a tattoo?

The answer is yes. On Tuesday, July 18, 2014, the Washington D.C. Area Tattoo Bar is coming to town.

And it’s not just tattoo parlor; it will be an open house to promote the tattoo trade and business. The bar is a part of the new business incubator in the District, and will give some insight into the culture of the tattoo trade in the region. I’m sure you will not want to miss this.

If you are in D.C. on Tuesday and want to come and try out one of the bar’s products, let us know. We will be having a few different types of tattoo-focused entertainment from 8-10:30 p.m. in the parking lot next to the bar at 1510 North Capitol Street NW.

The bar is located at 1513 N Capitol St NW.

If you think you can get an education without paying a lot of money in tuition, don’t bet on it.

According to a new report from the National Foundation for American Policy (NFAP) and the Foundation for Higher Ground (FHG), the median college tuition and fees for 2013-14 was $27,943 for the public sector and $25,936 for the for-profit sector. Meanwhile, the average cost of an undergraduate education was just over $22,000.

And if that weren’t enough, many students still can’t afford to attend college for any length of time, according to an April 2014 report from the American Institutes for Research (AIER), a research and policy center for higher education. The cost of attendance for four-year public institutions rose by almost 1% in the year, and the cost of in-state tuition rose 3% to $8,750. In-state tuition for private institutions rose by less than 1% from the prior year. This trend was the inverse of student expectations. A 2007 survey from the Brookings Institution showed that when students polled in their late teens and early 20s asked about where they expected to pursue education careers, nearly half predicted they would attend college. But just 5% said they would pay for it and pay only as high as $40,000.
