The event will include four tattoo stations offering original Hurricane Sandy / Red Hook-inspired designs created specially for the event by Rivington Tattoo.  Prices start at $50. The silent auction will offer prints (starting at $20) and original artwork (starting at $50) from artists across the U.S. and as far away as Europe.  There will also be a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted tattoo machine with a retail value of $500.

Hey Everyone!

We are having a benefit for businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy. Ethan lives in Red Hook, and was himself without heat, hot water, and power for 19 days. Red Hook is a bit off the beaten track and only has bus service there, so small businesses are very important for the neighborhood.

We are doing a tattoo benefit/art show on 12/16. Although it is short notice, we'd appreciate it if you could put it in your calendar...its going to be a great event for a great cause! We're still working on finding a space but more information will be forthcoming as soon as we work out the details.

So far the list of participating artists includes: Robert Hernandez, Mike Pike, Jojo Akermann, Dan Marshall, Lior Cifer, Damon Conklin, Bill Canales, Robert Atkinson, Betty Rose, Shelby Cobra, Hek1, Sweety, Zoe Bean, Lara Scotton, Rob Nunez, Alex Sherker, Murran Billi, Mike Godfrey, and Mike Bee. Mike Pike is sending a machine, because a good machine is art!

All of the proceeds will go directly to

More tattoo tips

1. If you are getting a tattoo on your hip a leotard is not a good clothing choice, unless you like being naked in front of strangers.
2. An MP3 player or tablet is good for distraction as long as we can't hear what you are listening to. We want you to be comfortable it helps you sit longer and makes the time fly by. A game system however is a bad choice, tattooing a button masher is not good for anyone involved.

some thing you should know before getting tattooed

1. Don't bring your children with you, they are a distraction to you and the tattoo artist.
2. Eat before and get plenty of rest before your appointment and hydrate with water not booze.
3. The shop bathroom is for peeing only, don't ruin everyones day here. Go home or go to McDonalds.
More to follow......
