You may remember the last announcement about the “Quick & Painful” – Fine Art Tattoo Tour going around the United States over the next few weeks. The show opened in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago, and is moving to New Haven, Connecticut this weekend!
Check out some of the excellent work you can get from artists like Ron English, Tara McPherson, and Alex Pardee (all images from The Hope Gallery’s Flickr set from L.A. – click for larger view):
There have been so many super awesome cool people who have gotten tattoos of Camilla d’Errico originals, and if you can make it out to any of the Quick & Painful show dates, you can choose from one of the designs below:

Don’t forget the Granimator and Color Ink Book contests are still happening! Enter before time runs out!
[Please note some dates have changed due to Hurricane Irene causing trouble along the East Coast.]

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!
