Lucky 13

Thirteen, an unlucky number to many, is actually an impressive figure if you’re talking about the life span of a typical indie business in Phoenix. Maybe that’s why Arizona’s most renowned tattoo/piercing destination is throwing a big-ass party to celebrate its 13th birthday. The Club Tattoo Anniversary Party goes off with live performances by Rabbit in the Moon, Julien-K, and Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington (one of Tattoo’s three owners). There’ll also be a DJ set by Shiny Toy Guns’ Jeremy Dawson. Luckily for us, Club Tattoo shows no signs of going belly up; in fact, a new shop in Las Vegas is scheduled to open next year. Totally another excuse to let loose.
