Rosa Negra Tattoo presents “The Mum Tattooed” event at Bousa Brewing!
- By Olivia McAuley
Ever wondered how those really cool art styles we see on people’s skin would look on other mediums?
This Sunday June 3rd, Rosa Negra Tattoo is once again gathering tattoo artists from all over South Florida for the second edition of their wood canvas art exposition, ‘The Mum Tattooed’. This time the event will take place at Bousa Brewing!
Fun fact: the name of the event was originally coined during the first ever gathering thrown by the shop, where the wooden mediums given to the artists had been shaped into that of a woman’s body. The success of the event birthed the series that would come, and would eventually be aptly named ‘The Mum Tattooed”.
to both bring together and celebrate the tattoo artist community, the collaborative event also hopes to introduce the art form to those who may not be familiar with it. By transposing these artists various and diverse tattoo styles onto mediums that wouldn’t otherwise be associated with tattooing, they hope to subvert any preconceived subcultural context and introduce the same sort of legitimacy and focus mainstream art gets.
Along with the live painting and showcases, Jolt Radio will be providing tunes via their resident DJ’s, and local electronic act Muning will be performing a live set for all in attendance. As the cherry on top, the event itself will be taking place at Bousa Brewing, a craft brewery & taproom located in Little River, who pride themselves on their use of local ingredients and local stories as inspiration. A match made in heaven.
The event is free for all to attend, family friendly and (if they behave) pet friendly! Doors are at 1 pm, with brews being served al day! DJs as of 3 pm, and live music at 6:30! Bousa Brewing is located at 7235 NE 4th Ave, Miami, FL. See you there!!
