In May 2016 I was invited by the proprietrix of Indigo Interiors to participate in an exhibition featuring the art of local tattoo artists.

It was a part of the monthly First Thursday evenings of art and culture in downtown Santa Barbara. On the first Thursday of every month participating galleries and cultural art venues are open from 5-8PM offering the public free access to art in a fun and social environment. Then the exhibitions continue for the rest of the month.

A series of 4 panels showing photographic examples of my tattoos filled a wall just inside the gallery, flanked by print-outs of the details of some of the designs and examples of the original patterns used to create them.
