You Decide, Trick or Treat? 13 Halloween Tattoos

Darcy Nutt of Chalice Tattoo in Boise, Idaho

Halloween, also known as All Hallows’ Eve, has its roots  in a pre-Christian festival from about 2,000 years ago which was held in the beginning of November. The festival was called Samhain (pronounced “sah-win”). Samhain, means “summer’s end” in Gaelic. Now, the opposite of that is, Samhainophobia, which is the fear of Halloween or the fear of the festival of the dead. Hard to imagine someone fearing the Festival of the Dead, after all, what could be more normal than dead people having a festival?  While there remains some debate with folklorist and historians about the exact origins of Halloween, one thing is for sure, if is started some 2,000 years ago and we are still celebrating it, All Hallow’s Eve deserves some special attention!

P.INK DAY 2015: Announcing Cities & Artists for Survivors of Breast Cancer

P.ink day 2015

Announcing that P.ink Day 2015 is coming to 13 North American cities on the weekend of October 10. This year we’ve enlisted 45 artists across our network to ink mastectomy tattoos for 45 remarkable breast cancer survivors. WHAT IS P.INK DAY? P.ink Day (“pea-ink day”) is our all-volunteer day of healing with ink. And more: it’s our make-a-wish day focused on an amazing experience for breast cancer survivors, which culminates with a mastectomy tattoo to help survivors reclaim some of the personal property that breast cancer stole. THREE YEARS RUNNING P.ink created the first P.ink Day in October 2013 with ten artists and ten survivors at Saved Tattoo NYC. It was incredible. [Check the video.] Last year our second P.ink Day spread to 13 locations across North America, with 37 artists. Again, stellar.
