@frosthound030 I hate the tattoo design chases but it got so much easier when I figured out I only needed to find where it ends up and go there immediately after it goes away and meet it.. I don't actually have to chase it.
I don't know what caused this. Maybe I saved at some point when I was drunk but every save (old/new) starts with me drunk. While not game breaking it is certainly annoying to have to sober up every time I load the game.
