On Saturday, June 25, my homegirl, Beyoncé stan and Needles and Sins editrix Marisa Kakoulas, hosts the release party for her latest book, Color Tattoo Art: Cartoon, Comics, Pin-Up, Manga, New School at NYC’s Sacred Tattoo Gallery.
Published by Edition Reuss, the hardcover Color Tattoo Art is a doorstopper of the first order—10lbs. and nearly 500 pages of coverage and photographs celebrating “color bombs around the world by stellar international tattooists.” As Marisa further puts it:
Dragons mutated and infused with psychedelic colors in trippy tableaus. Preening pin-ups with the luscious, highly exaggerated proportions of adolescent fantasy. Creepy cute children inhabiting dark freakscapes. Political satire played out in anthropomorphic caricature. Kittens and rainbows.
The party will go from 8-10pm, and will feature Sailor Jerry‘s signature rum, plus wine, beer and awesome people such as myself. Also, Marisa will be selling signed copies of Color Tattoo Art at a reduced price of $150.
