To Benefit the Children’s Burn Foundation
I am proud to announce the first annual “The Art of the Machine,” a charity event to be held July 11th 2014 in Downtown Long Beach at the Mai Tai Bar at the historic Long Beach Pike from 6pm – 2am.
The Art of the Machine will be a celebration of the Tattoo Machine with Custom Tattoo Machines to be auctioned off to Tattoo Artists as well as pieces by world renowned artists available to the public.
The Children’s Burn Foundation is the only known foundation that offers the Full Recovery Program for child burn survivors, locally, nationally, and internationally – a unique blend of medical care, psycho-social support services, and daily living support to help young burn survivors achieve their full potential.
The complex interplay of physical and psychological trauma resulting from severe burn injuries can profoundly affect the lives of children for years to come. Through the Foundation‘s full range of programs and services, young burn survivors receive new hope, a community of supporters who understand, and a chance at a full recovery.
Program services include:
- Medical Care & Support for Physical Recovery
- Family Emergency Assistance
- Camps & Retreats for Child Burn Survivors and Families
- Teen Support Group: Young Adult Burn Survivors & Supporters (Y.A.B.S.S.)
- Child & Family Support Groups
The night will begin at 6pm with a silent auction closing at 10pm and then followed up with live music and some special surprises until 2am.
There will be a special program highlighting the event, its donors, and sponsors with an article on the history of the Tattoo Machine and special cover art by Tattoo Artist Josh Duffy available to all attendees.
If anyone is interested in participating or sponsoring, please contact Casey Keener at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are still accepting Machine donations as well as art for auction to benefit the charity.
Current Sponsors Include: TatSoul, Eternal Tattoo Supply, Tattoo Artist Magazine, Tattoo Culture Magazine, Sullen Art Collective. Sponsorships are still available. Check out our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/ArtoftheMachine
Machine Builders currently committed include: Tim Hendricks, Union Machine, Chris Quidgeon, Dewey Smith, Mike Schaeffer, John Boyd, Cory Rogers, Paco Rollins and Brandon Lewis.
Tattoo Artists donating art include: Josh Duffy, Tom Berg, Scott Richardson and Tokyo Hiro.
We will also have a website up in June, roughly a month before the event starts with profiles on the Machine Builders and Artists as well as specs on the donated machines. Anything that does not sell the night of the event will be available on the sites e-store after the event for purchase.
Thank you for your support and I look forward to everyone getting involved in this special night to benefit kids in need! If we don’t, who will?

Oh what a night… The TCM launch party was more than any of us could have asked for. We wanted to celebrate all the work and effort we’ve put into this project and really blow it up for the people who showed up to support us. I think it’s safe to say that no one left disappointed… (more…)
Tattoo Culture Magazine is almost here! We’re down to the last few weeks before launching the first EVER tattoo magazine created by tattooers for the public! After two years of planning and six months of intensive research, we have created an effective vehicle for REAL tattooers to reach and dialog directly with the masses. The implications are huge! As a result we will discover that TOGETHER we can do what tv and the internet never will- TEACH people how to recognize and get good tattoos, from good artists! (more…)
