Kat Brings MUSINK Back For A Second Year


Some of you might remember last year Kat Von D came up with the MUSINK festival in an attempt to combine music and tattoo culture into a weekend of craziness.  And it spanned several cities earlier this year.  Well, she is at it again and has set the dates for the 2nd MUSINK festival for early 2009.

This time around, MUSINK will go national for 6 weeks, beginning in late January, and will feature music and tattooing and even seminars this time around.  In addition, Kat will be there full time and signing her new book, High Voltage Tattoo, which should be interesting.  And for fans of some old school punk rock, Social Distortion has signed on to headline the music portion of the festival as well.

The always quoteable Kat was of course ready and willing to provide this nugget…..

We had such a blast with the first MUSINK Festival, it only made sense to take this event on the road and share the experience with everyone all over the country. In my lifelong attempt to show the world what a brilliant form of art tattooing truly is, MUSINK will be the perfect way to showcase the world’s top tattooers, and their diversity in culture and style of the art—all under one roof.  MUSINK is gonna be so huge and so rockin’; I can’t wait to share it with the fans!
