If you’re in London this Wednesday, and near Covent Garden, you should definitely check out Miniature Ink II. An exhibition of miniature original artworks from over 100 of the world’s leading tattoo artists! Atomica Gallery and Thinks&Ink Magazine will be hosting this two-week Exhibition, where artists take on the Kewpie doll platform, to coincide with the London Tattoo Convention 2015, Miniature Ink II is also being held to raise awareness for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, with profits from sales being donated to the charity.
You may recognise the Kewpie Custom above from an UK Designer Toy Artist Alumni, who has this past two years moved in to Tattoo business. Holly Astral. Founder of Hey Cavey. Holly’s Kewpie will be part of the Miniature Ink II show. Great to see Holly’s art as part of a Custom ‘Toy’ show, although Holly’s move to tattooing has been greatly appreciated, using our TTC body for Holly’s permanent art 🙂
There will be a huge list of international Tattoo Artists taking part in this exhibition, we have a number of the artists pieces shown below but there’ll be loads more available at Atomica Gallery on Wednesday 23rd September for the opening night. Don’t forget that these will be available to purchase during the exhibition, with monies being raised for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.
The Miniature Ink II exhibition will run until 2nd October, if you’re unable to attend the Opening Night on the 23rd September. Definitely get down there if you get the chance to support a great cause.
