NEW TATTOO ARTIST AT PAPILLON FAMILY STUDIOS: AN INTERVIEW WITH HARLAN THOMPSON

 
 
Harlan Thompson, originally from Bloomington, Illinois, moved from Chicago to Sayulita the beginning of December with his wife and two children. Ironically, he walked into Papillon Family Studios, and discovered he had tattooed the owner of the shop, Chops Papillon, 23 years ago while living and working in Arizona. Harlan tells El Sayulero how he got his start in tattooing, about his style of tattooing, and much more.

LIVE, LOVE & EAT IN SAYULITA:
COCONUT SHRIMP 


In my last column I promised you Coconut Shrimp! This is a very delicious dish that you can make for company or for that very special someone in Sayulita. We have a great swimming pool here in Sayulita and my husband worked very hard all day in the hot sun replacing some broken tiles. I thought that he deserved a yummy dinner, so since coconut shrimp is one of his favorites, coconut shrimp it was!

PET OF THE WEEK 


My name is Duke and I'm a very beautiful Shepherd mix. I walked around and made myself comfortable in a house. Because the family already has 2 dogs and cats, they don't want to keep me. I'm friendly, calm, and simply lovely. I'm medium in size and would really like to find a good home where I'm 100% welcome. Would that be with you?
