Episode Info:

Gayle's family moved to the desert when she was four years old and they got a bit of a chilly reception... it snowed!  In this episode, Gayle reminisces about exploring in the desert and a few of the festivals and events for which people traveled for miles to attend.  Even after two moves away from the desert, Gayle says she always knew she was coming back. She and her husband, Tom, were married in her parents front yard in 29Palms (old timers and the California DOT spell it: Twentynine Palms) and they now own 'Ink and Steel' their tattooing and piercing business in Joshua Tree. Gayle is involved in the Joshua Tree community serving on the Joshua Basin Water District Citizens Board and regularly attending Municipal Advisory Council and other meetings.   A less than comfortable tattoo experience ignited Gayle's interest in becoming a tattoo artist, but being a tattoo apprentice, especially as a female unrelated to her mentor, was a challenging experience. She offers some helpful hints to help you have a great tattoo experience.   Gayle and Tom also operate an Airbnb call The Cactus Patch.   Mentioned in this episode:   Hi-Desert Start Article about Ink & Steel   Ink & Steel on Facebook   Gayle on Instagram   The Cactus Patch on Facebook
