Tatuaje 2017 is the third production of the event by Antonio Pelayo, who will be donating a portion of the proceeds to Plaza de la Raza, a nonprofit that provides afterschool arts education and mentorship programs to children on the eastside of Los Angeles.
“The main reason I produce Tatuaje and events like this is so I can raise funds for organizations that teach kids art,” Pelayo says.
“Drawing was how I dealt with things growing up, but I had to learn how to do it on my own. What I love about Plaza de la Raza is that these skills and techniques are taught by artists who make a living from their work—who have mastered their craft. That kind of mentorship can’t be taken for granted.”
The tattoo is one of the oldest art forms in the world, with the ink on skin phenomenon present in nearly every major civilization throughout history.
Tatuaje 2017 is a tribute to the unique tattoo culture of Los Angeles, and its multiheritage meltingpot.
The event will take place on Saturday, July 29 from 7pm to 1am at the Plaza de la Raza headquarters, located at 3540 N. Mission Road, Los Angeles, CA 90031.
