Most businesspeople have to pay to get their advertising message out. Bernie Moeller has people clamoring to buy his ads from him. He's the proprietor and artist of Bernie's Tattooing, at the dead end of West Avenue in Bristol Township, and frankly he has never had much of a budget for advertising in 14 years in the business. "I just give out a few T-shirts and word-of-mouth. That's it," Bernie says. There's no way Bernie could avoid generating a lot of word-of-mouth, as a matter of fact, because he is a striking sight.

THE MIAMI HEAT'S LeBron James got into the Halloween spirit by wearing a custom-made mouthguard sporting fangs while playing against the Magic on Friday night. Of course, there's now talk of the NBA handing out a ridiculous fine for such non-sanctioned behavior. That doesn't sit well with us or Bobbie Quinn, whose Philadelphia-based company, Sport Guard Inc., manufactured the custom mouthguard. "I'm a little distressed," Quinn said yesterday.

Q: You moved the business to the trendy area now called Midtown Village. Why? A: Our business model changed and we became a custom-invitation studio, and the old store wasn't designed to keep up with the work.
