After the opening party March 21, If you wish to get involved and share in the collective OTM consciousness, bring your sketch pads along as on the 22nd March there will be a field trip into the jewel in Italy's eye: Venice. Here you will become immersed in the stunning architecture and atmosphere of this beautiful water side city, rubbing shoulders and swapping hints and tips with many of the other artists as you sketch some of the stunning vistas.
Just viewing the list of international artists attending for the opening weekend illustrates the eye for quality, innovation and passion that Off the Map Tattoo has come to represent. But this is not just about the launch weekend, it is about long term aims of Off the Map Tattoos and their ethos to share artists and artistic information on both canvas and skin; pushing forward the boundaries of tattooing and art in general to improve and spread awareness of this incredible art form.
Jeff Gogue told me; "It does not matter whether an artist is young or old, new or established, just as long as there is the right attitude and intention that will benefit tattoo culture and the community, as a whole."
