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.

NY Empire State Tattoo Expo

So we are just a month away from attending the 1st Annual Empire State Tattoo Expo put on by Stefano Alcantara and the fine folks at Inked Magazine. We are so thankful to have been invited. Adam, Evan and Joe will be setting up with Chris Tavino from Hat City Tattoo in Danbury. The convention is close by and is being held at the Westchester County Center for the Arts. We hope to see some familiar faces and make some new friends.

This coming week we will be hosting Ellen Murphy for three days before she heads out west to Portland to make tattoos out there. We are looking forward to having her talents with us at Graceland Tattoo.
