so..lets start a new thread, "How did the oil spill effect your income" Maybe those who like to sit in judgement will begin to understand how the web of a local economy works. Only locals get tatto`s ??? really you said that???

Lots of drunk Spring-breakers get tattoos. If a waiter or waitress has a valid claim, then I guess a tattoo artist does as well, so long as they can show a loss from previous years.
Of course, in any industry and in any walk of life, there are some who are always first in line for a free hand-out.

Actually Mega, I didn't file, I did hear of recreational fishermen getting upwards of 5,000 back if they filed, I didn't file, my wife works in an office for a local dentist and several in her office filed and got paid, and like me my wife said she didn't feel it was right when we have not suffered any hardships. But hey there are some that would take free cow manure if it was being given away, maybe it has something to do with the way you were raised.

Bare, I have tatts, and know plenty of people with tatts, none of my tatts were the result of me getting one while being a tourist on vacation, and of all the people I know with tatts I would say there is a SMALL percentage that had ever got one while on vacation. That being said one could assume that vacationers who did not show as a result of the oil spill would be a very small percentage of a tattoo parlors income. For someone to poor mouth and then put out a 3,000 dollar full page add in the local newspaper just doesn't add up.

F BP. Every penny anybody on the Gulf Coast gets from them helps our economy recover from what they did. No matter how much of their revenue comes back to the local economy, it will never fix what they did.

ccc you must understand, no construction = no tat loot , no fishing = no tat loot. dad`s tire store is down because locals are scared to spend money = can`t hit up pops` for tat loot sucks , no tippers at peg legs = no tat loot. Tats are a luxury and entertainment item, the first thing that goes in a pinch. Hate it or Love it. The tat man is EXACTLY the kind of people this money was set aside for.

CCC, I do not think there needs to be notes written to the tattoo shop by lost customers explaining they couldn't get a tattoo due to the spill... Simply showing your gross and net revenues for 3 years would be plenty proof.

If you can show that your projected income trends did not pan out in the year of the spill, that is enough to show that something adversely affected the cash flow. Since weather was excellent last year and we faced no tropical weather, we can fairly reason that it was due to the oil spill.

How can my wife's boss prove he lost revenue at his seafood restaurant because of BP and not because of falling food quality or sorry ass bitchy wait staff (which is a problem too)?

I understand how the payout works hog, but just like the girls in my wifes office got paid by claiming their hours were cut due to the spill, when in fact with my wife working there she could attest that it had nothing to do with the spill, long story, and not going to air their laundry on here, but bottom line you can still show a loss and it not have anything to do with the spill.

CCC, the problem with what you are saying is that you are putting the burden of proof on the local businessman. They should not have to "prove" beyond a shadow of doubt that the spill caused a loss of income. BP is the one who should have to prove that the oil did not cause the local businessman to lose money. It might be the economy or it might not. However, the burden of proof belongs to those who are culpable for the situation...in this case, BP. You, personally, can assume and speculate that the spill had nothing to do with the tattoo business losses, but you cannot PROVE that it did not. Therefore, if reasonable evidence is provided by the locals, BP should pay.
