Just In Time For Easter… “The Original Zombie” Group Art Show to be Featured at Eight of Swords Tattoo in Brooklyn.

The Eight of Swords Art Gallery in Williamsburg Brooklyn will present a group artist exhibition of Zombie-themed works entitled The Original Zombie. The exhibition will open on April 5th and continue through May 11th, 2012. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on April 5th from 7pm to 11pm. This is a unique opportunity to view original works by several local and national tattoo artists, photographers, graphic artists and fine artists.

These works are being displayed during the Easter holiday to intentionally coincide with our tongue in cheek “celebration” of Jesus Christ’s Biblical rise from the dead, therefore he was the “Original Zombie”. Artists include Justin Adams from Varia Studios, Jess Versus, Joy Rumore & Gerald Feliciano from Twelve 28 Tattoo, Tobias Batz, Sophie C’est La Vie and D.C. Wallin from Eight of Swords, Brian Faulk from Hand of Glory Tattoo, Jim Gentry, Karen Rockower Glass from The End is Near, Mike Moses, Tron and Guy Ursitti from Thicker than Water, Miguel Oldenburg from Motorwolf, Andy Perez, Nalla Smith from Goose Tattoo, Adam Suerte and Sara Antoinette Martin from Brooklyn Tattoo, Benjamin Thomas from 13 Roses Tattoo Parlor, Kati Vaughn and Woodz from Magic Cobra Tattoo Society, Christina Garcia and Pete Triolo from Built 4 Speed Tattoo, Linda Wulkan, Dan Marshall from Tribulation Tattoo, Tasha Rubinow from Inborn Tattoo and more.

Eight of Swords Tattoo is quite a bit more than your traditional tattoo studio. The new combination shopping, fine art and tattoo destination nestled in the heart of Williamsburg, offers its customers a very unique experience. Housed in an original Williamsburg storefront built in 1849, Eight of Swords holds true to timeless ideals that are easily lost in our fast-paced lifestyle.

Under ornate tin ceilings, wrought iron chandeliers and surrounded by warmly lit eclectic decor, patrons browse new art exhibits while the subtle, meditative buzz of tattoo machines play in harmony with selections of jazz, grunge, punk and classic rock. Mingling shoppers, art enthusiasts and tattoo clients alike browse the exclusive collection of jewelry and merchandise creatively showcased in vintage display cases. Each detail complements the other and culminates in a space that both reflects Eight of Swords’ values and hearkens to another era.
