First Friday heats up tonight with creative works going up all over the city. Here are our picks for shows not to miss this artful evening.
"No Phobia Tattoo Art Show" @ FilmBar Whether it's a heartfelt memento, a meaningful mantra, or a night of too much tequila, every tattoo has a story. Inspired by everything from pop culture to personal experience, body art has at best been thought of as fine art's alternative spinoff. But now the tables are finally turned as downtown's FilmBar debuts its "No Phobia Tattoo Art Show," a monthlong exhibition showcasing tattoo-inspired artwork.
This free show is on display in the colorful FilmBar lounge, featuring the works of thirteen artists including Jason Anthony of Golden Rule Tattoo, Nicole Marie McCord of Urban Art Tattoo, Tariq Sabur of Fine Art For Bodies, Alexis Freeman of Black Lotus Tattooers, Mike Fite of Pride & Glory, and Luke Dorsett of Yakuza Tattoo Photography.
