Tattoo Artist Family in Their Part-Time Bus Conversion

Caitlin, Curtis, and their seven-year-old son travel part-time in their epic school bus conversion. They own a tattoo parlor in Seattle and have a small home in Oregon. The initial idea was to put a container home in the backyard for guests, but then that idea shifted to a skoolie, so they could also use it for vacations.

While they haven’t spared any expense in building out their bus, they also haven’t taken on any debt, just converting what they could when the money came in. They believed in doing it right the first time, and the result is pretty amazing! Check it out below.
