    Over 600 people showed up to the first SKIN:INKS exhibition closing event, and were treated to a mini-convention with live tattooing by Gabe and Leon from Ace Dragon, Julia from Starcrossed, Joey from Temple and Omar from Magic Tattoo.

    The allegedly retired Dj Bodhi and the mighty Uptown Rockers supplied the tunes, while silky smooth superstar Michael Wong and the gorgeous Cara G hosted the event, with pro auctioneer Jehan Chu putting the artwork under the hammer.

    By the end of a long and messy night, we'd raised over HK$150,000 for youth outreach charity Kely Support Group.

    Thanks to our own Red Dog Studio and especially to alivenotdead.com's StayRudee for the awesome event pix.

    The first SKIN:INKS exhibition featured 26 canvases by 20 different tattoo artists from 14 of Hong Kong's finest tattoo studios and ran from June 13th through July 9th at RACKS in Central HK.

    The innovative format of the exhibition involved life-size semi-nude photographs on canvas that had been painted/drawn on directly by the tattoo artists. Each life size image was given to the tattoo artist along with a brief profile of their ‘model’ – name, age, occupation. The tattoo artist then used this ‘skin’ image as a blank canvas to create his/her artwork by drawing/painting directly onto the canvas.
