matt mcclain tattoo

i know this has been done before but @lilyshilo and i were talking about a tattoo shop! au

  • coran officially owns the shop, allura is his niece that works there full time as an artist
  • he deals with customers and finances more while she’s the head artist and works with scheduling n stuff
    • allura only has a few tattoos herself, a flower on her upper back, a little line of planets on the inside of her wrist,  and one big colored one down her side 
      • that one took forever to do but it’s her absolute favorite
        • other than they lion ones the group got to match, her’s is right in the center of her chest and it’s mostly pink
  • hunk’s another artist, he’s very nice and kind and loves doing people’s first tattoos 
    • he did lance’s first actually
  • his lion is on his right calf and it’s yellow and it’s beautiful against his skin color
    • he really likes it 
  • he brings in cookies a lot and they get put on the desk but they’re gone by the afternoon
    • cough PIDgE YOU COOKIE HOG
  • pidge works there part time, she’s learning to be an artist but right now she just runs the desk (and has control over the music and cookies)
    • lance always complains, even if he likes it
  • pidge only has like. two tattoos. even though theyre kind of illegal aka done by keith at his house one night 
    • one’s a robot, he’s super cute and she nicknamed it rover, the other is a barcode, theyre both super small tho so she doesnt get in trouble with her parents
      • she actually has three bc of the lion, her lion is on her right arm, on her shoulder
  • only matt knows about her tattoos bc he comes to the shop to Hang with his bf and gf
  • speaking of matt’s bf let’s talk about shiro
  • he works as an artist/piercer, depends on the day 
  • he has a bunch of different tattoos, his arms are practically covered
  • except for his prosthetic but that’s covered in paintings from keith too
    • he has some on his back, and his lion tattoo is on his mid back, but is suuuper big 
      • it’s all black and super intricate, keith did it.
        • keith did all of them
  • anyways, so yea, shiro is dating matt n allura (ot3) and theyre like, so cute
  • everyone was happy for them yada yada
  • lance and pidge betted on when they would figure it out (pidge won)
  • lance is a piercer btw, he does piercings for people 
    • some of them in weird spots man
    • and some of them are ugly too like jesus
      • he cant say anything tho lol and it frustrates him so he rants to hunk and keith whoevers closer
  • he has a few piercings, his ears and a nose stud that he wears more often than not
  • he only had one tattoo for a while, then he got his lion
    • it’s blue and it’s on his left thigh and it’s pretty and looks like water a little
  • he started to get more and more tho (so he had a reason to talk to keith tbh)
    • he got a whole bunch of little ones on his neck and arms and hands and wrists and back and ankles
    • his favorite is one keith did one night when they were alone, about to clean up
      • it’s a little crescent moon and he loves it
        • he kisses it goodnight lol
  • yea but keith
  • keith is an artist and holy shit can this kid fucking art
  • he’s so good at it, lance is #jealous
  • he honestly doesn’t have that many tattoos, the ones he has, maybe four or five, are all fairly big tho 
  • he did all the lion tattoos, that’s why they’re so pretty and special
    • his lion is on his left arm, it’s sort of small and crooked bc he did it himself one night
      • he loves it anyways
  • he sometimes forgets that things stain and his hands are constantly stained from putting away inks but not being careful
  • he usually closes up by himself or with lance
  • keith has his ears all pierced up, and a bar in one of them, his nose and he even got his belly button done bc why not?
    • all done by lance, of course
      • totally not a reason to see him
        • the klance is strong in this one
  • they hang at the shop to work and stuff and sometimes go out at night to hang
  • shiro was the first one to get hired, then keith, they’ve been there the longest and are pretty good friends to boot
  • Lance and Hunk grew up together and are besties, they’re so in sync it gets creepy, they started working at the same time
  • pidge came last, ut she and keith bonded and theyre like, super tight now even if it’s over memes and how dumb lance is but honestly theyre really good friends
  • shiro is very parental and they tease him and allura whenever they go out together, and then they call matt their second, more fun dad bc he lets them actually do stuff
    • like break into an abandoned warehouse and skateboard
      • whY MATT NO STOP THEM ‘it’s too late shiro i already cut the fence’ YOURE A TERRIBLE INFLUENCE
  • that was a fun night
  • they’re all buddies and awesome and yes
  • also there is sooo klance
