San Franciscans like to express themselves: Burning Man, anyone? It's no more unusual to spy a tattoo on a stroller-pushing mom than on a garbage can-perched ex-con. Does San Francisco have more tattoos than people? Quite possibly.

Every week we'll accost a (mostly) willing victim and grill them about their choices. (Why the unicorn? What does it mean to you?) You could be next! (You really could -- volunteer yourself or your friends here).

Name: Jake Godby, proprietor of Humphrey Slocombe Ice Cream

Spotted at: His place of business

Tattoo: Ice cream cones

Why/When: I got the tattoos about two years ago. I wanted to open the ice cream shop and I figured that after getting them, there was no going back.

Any Regrets?: No. Never.

Funniest/Strangest Comment: Once, a homeless guy tried to lick them. Does that count? (SF Weekly: Yes, yes it does.)

ETC: Sometimes people ask if the cones have flavors. They don't. We just made them up as we went along.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
