HeartbeatInk Headquarters Grand Opening & 3 Years Anniversary Party

Extras - Issue 22

On Saturday, May the 7th, the grand opening of HeartbeatInk's art space took place in Athens. From 18:00 until the early morning hours, HeartbeatInk Headquarters opened officially their doors to the public for the very first time.

The multispace of HeartbeatInk is a space dedicated to the art of tattoo and houses the offices of the magazine, showroom & shop of "HeartbeatInk Apparel", fully equipped photographic studio and art gallery.

An important part of the Greek tattoo community, and many fans of the genre in general visited the opening. The turnout was great from the beginning of the event, despite the extremely difficult travel conditions due to the general strike of public transport, and the closure of the city centre.

It was the most wonderful opening that we could have had and we thank you all and all for honouring us with your presence and for showing us your love and appreciation.

HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine sincerely thanks the Sailor Jerry rum for sponsorship the amazing spiced cocktails and the beautiful Tiki bar that was set up in our space, and also its team, without which it would not have been such a unique evening.

We would also like to thank Panthenols Tattoo - the Greek specialized tattoo aftercare products - for its significant support and DJ NOIZ, Constantine Kalfakakos and Jim Darkstar for the soundtrack of the event, which they choose with mastery. In addition, we thank our media sponsors LIFO, Popaganda and Noiz Art & Music Productions.

Along with the opening, we celebrated the three year anniversary of HeartbeatInk Tattoo Magazine. Three years full of art, research, traveling and of course ink.

We would like to close with three sayings of Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins that we like very much.

"My work speaks for itself".
"Good work ain't cheap. Cheap work ain't good".
"I'd rather have character than be one".
