Adam Feature in Hudson Valley Magazine.

More great things coming down the pike at Graceland Tattoo. A few things have yet to be announced and will be in the days to come. However, we are really proud to announce our very own Adam Lauricella has been featured in Hudson Valley Magazine's  September issue
HVMAG put together a very nice feature on 4 tattooers in the Hudson Valley. They included Adam and two of our friends.  Miranda Lorberer of Pop's Tattoo in Kingston, NY. As well as legendary tattooer and folk artists Thom DeVita who now resided in Newburgh, NY. Many of you may already know the deep respect Adam has for Thom so we were thrilled to see they sought out Thom. As Adam said, "You can't do a spread on tattooing in the Hudson Valley and not include Thom…it wouldn't be worth reading".  We are fans of Hudson Valley Magazine and really feel they do a great job highlighting many of the great things the Valley has to offer. We really feel great knowing they came to Graceland Tattoo to show their readers a little bit about our eclectic tattoo parlor that has become a mainstay in quality tattoo art in the Hudson Valley and beyond. We think it's safe to say the article is not only a nod to Adam but to Allison, Brian, Evan, Joe, Lindsay, Keely and Cookie; As well as all the other guest artist who have come to work along side us. As well as our loyal clients, who often times become friends and family. Thanks to Michael Polito for the stellar photo and everyone at the magazine who helped to make the spread happen. Pick one up at your local news stand.

Please don't forget about Tattooing to Save Babies on September 27th from 11 am to 8 pm. Or the Hudson Valley Magazines "Best of the Hudson Valley" party Thursday, October 9th from 5:30-8:30. We will be back again!

Tattooing to Save Babies

We are proud to announce our 3rd Annual March of Dimes Event Tattooing to Save Babies event. Come on out Saturday Sept. 27th and support this awesome cause! We will be tattooing select designs from 11 am to 8 pm. All proceeds will go to the March of Dimes to lend relief to premature babies and their families. It's a great event started 7 years ago by our friend Krooked Ken at Black Anchor Tattoo in Denton, Maryland. This has become a national event. Over the last 2 years Graceland Tattoo has earned more than $10,000 for the March of Dimes. The fund as a whole has exceeded $70K! We are proud to be a part of it. This year our very own Adam Lauricella was asked by Ken to design the flier. This is his effort. We hope to see a lot of you out lending your support. Don't let us down people! Make us proud!

A new member to the team

So I'm happy to say we have added a fourth tattooer to the roster.  Cookie over at Pop's Tattoo in Kingston, NY will be sitting in with us on Monday's. At this point all full time resident tattooers have a pretty jam packed schedule. With Cookie coming on we will be able to accommodate some of you fine folks a little sooner. Cookie has been tattooing in the Hudson Valley for a number of years, most notably at Pop's where he will remain full time. Please come down to the tattoo parlor and welcome him, take a seat in his chair and get tattooed if you'd like. You won't leave disappointed.
