The bus travels to Sacramento to tattoo Heather, a voluptuous artist who used to work in a mortuary and has a collection of dead animals. Thomas completely changes the artwork she drew for her tattoo, but she ends up loving the tat. The bus moves on to San Francisco to interview potential shop helpers. None of the women they interview are right for the job, so they continue their trip without hiring anybody. While in San Francisco, Thomas and Krystin tattoo matching eggplants on a gay couple. After the tattoo, Thomas performs a renegade wedding for the love birds.
