Blackwork Weekend is right around the corner and we#39;re busy getting ready for 3 full days of tattooing and professional development over at our new studio in Easthampton, MA. We#39;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#39;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 amp; 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 amp; legs. This has left him unable to tattoo amp; walk for the foreseeable future.)
In addition to the collab tattoo, we#39;ll be streaming each tattoo artist#39;s sessions we#39;ll also be hosting a live art show, coordinating a good old fashioned drank #39;n#39; 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 www.TattooNOWtv.com on September 6th @ 10:00 PM EST.
Mark your calendars, tell some friends, put in a bid, tune in to our live streams on Twitch! and Usteam, and great ready for some awesome blackwork tattooing.
