It is with great sadness that we say good bye today to our good friend and talented artist Tom Strom. It has been an enlightening 12 years of working with him and we all have gained more from him than we can ever give back! If you happen to be in the Netherlands, look him up at Kynst Tattoo! And dont forget to say good bye to Tom tomorrow night at Elsie’s 7pm- Late!
Uptown Tattoo is stoked to add Chris Kraphol to our list of talented artists! He will begin working Sept 23, check out his stuff here and on our facebook page!
This Friday we are having the opening for Blowout, the benefit show for Tom Strom! You can buy the prints in person, or online for the next 4 weeks! Check out this link- you won’t be disappointed, there is some amazing art by world class artists in this show!! We will also be raffling an awesome liner built by Ahren Bloomquist!!
PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE WANTING TO GET TATTOOED ON THIS SUNDAY!! All designs are as is, no changing of colors or size. You don’t get to pick who tattoos you either. First come first served! If you want something custom or to pick your artist, please call the shop or send an email to make an appointment, this is a special event and these are the rules.
I am thinking we can do between 30-50 tattoos for Tom, depending on how smoothly everything goes. When we run out of time or tubes, that is it- so please be patient with us, we are only human.
Next Sunday, 3/10, Uptown Tattoo will be doing tattoos from a special set of flash for 80$ a piece 1-7pm. All proceeds will be given to our best buddy Tom Strom to help him recover from his surgery. We will be posting the designs here later this week. First come first served, here’s a chance to show your love and get a tattoo at the same time!
