This fall our friends from the Hope Gallery along with the Baroness, To Die For and Pulse International put on a really cool event entitled "Quick and Painful". They had flash designed for the event from a slew of amazing contemporary artists and designers including, Alex Pardee, Amanda Visell, Brandt Peters, Camilla D’Errico, David Horvath, Devilrobots, Frank Kozik, Greg “Craola” Simkins, Huck Gee, Joe Ledbetter, Junko Mizuno, Kathie Olivas, Pete Fowler, Ron English, Sam Flores, Shawn “Shawnimals” Smith, TADO, Tara McPherson, and Tokidoki co-founder and Creative Director Simone Legno.They then hosted the show in Los Angeles, Chicago, New Haven, and Miami. At each stop along the way the gallery packed in a ton of talented tattoo artists, including, Dan Smith, Jennifer Trok, Heath Rave, Sean Adams, Patrick Cornolo, Jime Litwalk, Tim Harris, Phil Young, Julio Rodriguez, Scott White, Christian Perez, Eric Merrill, and Joe Capobianco. These artists did tattoos from the flash on a first come first serve basis at just $40 each!
Every venue was a sell out with lines around the block to get these collector tattoos. The limited edition flash sets from the shows are still available through the Hope Gallery.We were happy to be a sponsor of such cool events with such creative people. Sometimes it's good for the soul to sponsor events like this. Thanks to everyone who came out and to the other sponsors for making this event happen.
