Blackwork Weekend Streaming Live on - Sept 4th-6th

Tuesday August 18, 2015

Blackwork Weekend is right around the corner and we're busy getting ready for 3 full days of tattooing and professional development over at our new studio in Easthampton, MA. We'll be welcoming amazing blackwork artists like Cory Ferguson, Hanumantra, Nathan Mould, Watson Atkinson, Joe King, and Canyon Webb who will be tattooing up a storm all week long.

One hugely important piece of this event weekend is a benefit auction that will raise money for influenctial tattooer, Xed Le Head's recovery from spinal surgery*. Cory Ferguson and Hanumantra (pictured above) will be working together on a collaborative tattoo for the highest bidder, so get those bids in and give back to the man who invented the dotwork & geometric tattoo style that is so popular right now.

(*Xed recently underwent surgery to repair a damaged disc below his brain. The disc had become jagged and tore the nerves that effect his arms & legs. This has left him unable to tattoo & walk for the foreseeable future.)

In addition to the collab tattoo, we'll be streaming each tattoo artist's sessions we'll also be hosting a live art show, coordinating a good old fashioned drank 'n' draw event, and gathering everyone together for a discussion panel that will be the main event on our episode of Off the Map LIVE! on on September 6th @ 10:00 PM EST.
