It's Party Time!
It's true. I only do these monster hardcover tattoo books for the parties.
And also because I enjoy telling people that I've given birth to a nearly-8lb beautiful black bundle of joy.
Black Tattoo Art II: Modern Expressions of the Tribal -- my 448-page love letter to tattoos (mostly) created in black ink -- has officially been released and the first shipment of my author copies has landed in NYC. Naturally, we must drink and dance. Here are the details:
When: Sunday, September 15th, from 4-7PM
Where: Bar Matchless, 557 Manhattan Ave., Brooklyn, NY 11222. [The back room]
Located on the corner of Manhattan Ave. and Driggs Ave. in Greenpoint near McCarren Park.
Who: You and anyone else you want to bring.
Why: Just to party. I will be selling the book, but I'd love to have you there just to hang. No purchase necessary for my love. DJ Les Boogie will be spinning and there will be drink and food specials. In fact, get there early and have an amazing brunch at Matchless in their front room.
If you are interested in purchasing the book, I will be selling it at the reduced author rate of $150 (rather than $199). There will also be limited copies available of the first Black Tattoo Art volume, and also the Black & Grey Tattoo box sets.
We'll also be partying in the UK at the London Tattoo Convention, September 27-29! Look out for the Edition Reuss Publishing booth, where I'll be selling Black Tattoo Art 2, and all my babies. A gathering is being planned; most likely we'll all be raising a glass at one of the bars in the beautiful Tobacco Docks convention hall.
