Oliver Peck’s annual tattoo feats on Friday the 13th are already the stuff of legend and record (he’s literally in the Guinness book for it). But this year marks the start of a huge development for the event: It will now be a tattoo AND music festival, and Reverend Horton Heat will co-present alongside Peck. The festival goes from Friday, September 13 to Sunday, September 15, and tickets are on sale now. They’re $20 for a one-day pass, $40 for a weekend pass or $100 for VIP, which includes access to a “private club” on Elm Street.
Here’s a few pictures from the madness last night… Enjoy! (Also, look for a complete Friday the 13th article from Oliver Peck in the following days…) (more…)
Are you superstitious? Well, Helltown Workshop is! Well for the last two weeks of May anyways. Friday the 13th gave the Provincetown, Massachusetts gallery a chance to get very superstitious.

Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most… New York has missing pieces of my memory buried in her blanket of billboards, bright lights and broken glass… The end of the weekend had a very Fear-and-Loathing-in-Las-Vegas feel to it… There are cell phone camera-flashes, and small chunks of larger events replaying in a non-descriptive manner in my mind. I can recall middle pieces that have no end and beginnings that have no middle or ending… They only thing I’m 100 percent positive on; I had a good time… I think? [Video on expanded page] (more…)
HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH!!! Friday the 13th has always gotten a bad rap for being unlucky. Well, we’re here to change that. With the help of Oliver Peck and his crew at Elm Street Tattoo. The Sailor Jerry Airstream is even going to make an appearance. Clear your schedule and get in line early. [Via Sailor Jerry Co. press release]
