Come join us for the most “dangerous” art session around.
April 17th from 2-4pm at Gangplank we will be hosting a learn to tattoo event for kids 8 and older. Artists Nate “Nasty Nate” Houtz, Adam “A-Bomb” Molina and Johnny “Jevvy Jev” from Tabü Tattoos will be on hand to go over the equipment, keeping things sterile, stenciling and much more.
This is a hands on event. The kids will be tattooing grapefruit, oranges and any other citrus we can get our hands on with REAL tattoo machines, ink and needles. For those that want to take it to the next level several Gangplank Jr supporters have even offered up their skin for actual tattoos from the new apprentices.
You must RSVP for this event as space and machines will be limited. Please leave a comment below if you plan on attending.
Desert Bloom is what Gangplank is all about. While it was a great showing of using free infrastructure provided for creatives to create and show off their work it really was about so much more. It was about a group of people stepping up and taking initiative to make the place they live better. Not only for themselves but for other creatives like them. We asked for volunteers to get involved in bringing music to Gangplank and from a few exchanges Greg Taylor, Brandon Franklin, Brandon Mason and Nicholas DiBiase ran with it and put together a fabulous event to kick off the YearOfMusic.
We are excited to be moving into a new space soon that will allow local musical creatives to really flourish by providing studio and venue space to not only perform, but to create and collaborate. If you want to be involved drop us a line we plug you in. If you have an idea of something you want to see at Gangplank speak up. Our goal is to help people follow their passion and unlock their talent and creativity. We look forward to seeing everyone participate.
