New England News: Only Two Weeks Until Our Tattoos For The Arts Charity Event!
The countdown is on! Just two little ol' weeks until the big charity event! On Sunday, November 23th 2014, Off the Map Tattoo (of both Easthampton, MA & Grants Pass, OR) as well as many other tattoo studios nationwide, will be offering $50 flash tattoos from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. Historically we have had people lining up as early as 7am, so prepare! This year we are using "The Arts" as our theme, so flash subject matter will include things inspired by dance, music, theatre, culinary arts, and more!
Absolutely 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charitable organizations that are dedicated to preserving and protecting the arts. Locally, Off the Map Tattoo will be donating all proceeds to the Flywheel in Easthampton..
Flywheel is a non-profit, volunteer-run community arts space open to all, offering:
Film & video screenings
Poetry & spoken word
Theater & performance art
A zine library
Space for meetings & discussion groups
Fun and games
... and more!
Flywheel is a place for countless types of artistic expression, where people can come and create, have fun, and exchange ideas. Flywheel is not owned by anyone, it is everyone's to share and support.
Donators attending the event will be able to choose from multiple pre-designed pieces of tattoo flash art, all of which involve The Arts . The flash art is drawn specifically for this event by Off the Map's tattoo artists and will include a wide variety of options to choose from. Here is a sneak peek of just a handful of your tattoo options fro the event:
Stay tuned to the event's facebook page to check out the other flash sheets as they are released!
If you wish to support the cause without getting tattooed, we will happily accept monetary donations as well.
There is also a benefit raffle being held now through the entire month of November where three winners will be drawn. Tickets can be purchased $1 each. There will be multiple raffle prizes being offered including a $300 Off the Map gift certificate. Raffle tickets may be purchased in person at the studio, as well as over the phone anytime by calling (413) 527-6574. You can check out these FAQ's for additional info about the charity day! We hope to have a huge turnout this year and hope you'll be a part of it!
