Big thanks to Butch Walker & the Black Widows!

We had a blast this past Sunday tattoo the band members and stage crew of Butch Walker & the Black Widows. It definitely wasn't our usual Sunday when the tour bus pulled up and parked outside the shop, and everyone came it to start getting tattooed. Our residents Ben Reigle, Kelly Doty and Chloe Vanessa all took on a few tattoos each and Phil Young from Hope Gallery and Meghan Lee came in on reserve so we could do a total of ten tattoos in the five hour time frame the band had free  before hitting the road for their next show.

Everyone got a slightly different variation of a black widow tattooed. Five of them had never been tattooed before, and on top of that, one band member even got a second tattoo of a scorpion because he liked his first tattoo so much! Phil Young did an awesome photorealistic portrait tattoo of the tour manager's late brother, which came out awesome, and after that, the tour manager also got a black widow tattoo as well!

We had an absolute blast with these guys and we were happy to send them off to finish off their tour a little bit more tattooed, and with another killer memory under their belts. Thanks to Phil Young & Tom Addision, the band manager, who helped put this all together. We'd love to tattoo more bands on the road, so if you're on tour, heading through Massachusetts, tattoos are on your mind and you want a date to remember, the crew of Off the Map would love to make it happen!
