LAKE FOREST, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SearchCore, Inc. (OTCQX: SRER), a technology-based Internet marketing services company that connects consumers with brands, products and services, announced today that it has entered into a management agreement with the founder of Tattoo.com. The addition of Tattoo.com to the SearchCore portfolio of web marketing properties demonstrates another strategic milestone for SearchCore as the company continues to expand its Internet business marketing platform into the lifestyle industry.
"Tattoo.com is the premium domain in the $2.3 billion U.S. tattoo and tattoo removal industries, and with SearchCore's technology and marketing services, we are confident it will become the de facto finder site for tattoo enthusiasts," said Jim Pakulis, CEO of SearchCore, Inc. "Currently, there are an estimated 25,000 tattoo stores and over 100,000 tattoo artists across the United States. That's 10 times as many stores as our most recent finder site success. Our mission is to connect these service providers with consumers in the areas where they do business. We plan to be the go-to resource for anything tattoo-related – art, history, culture, expos, aftercare – through an interactive web property with engaging features and information. We already have 3,500 shops that have agreed to be in our database."
SearchCore has commenced the build out of Tattoo.com content on its technology platform, and Tattoo.com is set to re-launch as a premium finder site in early March 2013. Features of the Tattoo.com site will include tattoo picture galleries, community forums, blogs, newsletters and social media integration.
Jonathan Kaye, founder of Tattoo.com commented, "We are excited about working with the team at SearchCore to provide the tattoo industry with an all-encompassing finder site and interactive online community. SearchCore's proven record of developing and marketing vertical finder sites in niche industries will be a key driver of Tattoo.com's continuing growth and expansion."
