Many tattoo artists are passionate about their work, whether they’re creating on canvas or on skin. This Thursday, you’ll be able see what these artistic folks are making when they aren’t designing things like chest pieces and sleeves. Minneapolis tattoo artists Lindsee “Bee” Boyer and Jessi Lawson are the curators for this year’s show, now in its second year, and they have selected 50 different artists who ink tattoos as well as working in acrylics, watercolors, and oil paint. The event might whet your appetite for the Minneapolis Tattoo Arts Convention, happening nearby this weekend, where you can see these artists working in their other medium. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 11 p.m. Thursday, January 10, featuring music by BAARD.
