“Quick & Painful” – Fine Art Tattoo Tour

[Please note some dates have changed due to Hurricane Irene causing trouble along the East Coast.]

On Saturday, September 3rd, the Crewest Gallery in Los Angeles will kick-off the “Quick & Painful” tattoo art show that will travel the United States until the end of the year. For one night only fans can get a tattoo from one of 15 pop-artists, including work from Alex Pardee, Amanda Visell, Ron English, Kathie Olivas, and more!
