Art is Forever

Not that this should sound like a warning, but: before you get your entire body tattooed up make sure you know WHAT you wanna get onto – nope – under your skin and who does it. “Art is Forever” is a project by Jason Sturgill that attempts to foster a more meaningful connection between the art museum and its visitors. Several Portland artists have been selected and given the opportunity to create illustrations inspired by their visits to the Portland Art Museum. These illustrations will be made available as free tattoos on a first come, first served basis throughout the entire day.

Hopefully this little vid is a good inspiration and helps you choose the right thing. BTW: Jason is currently a candidate in the MFA Art and Social Practice program at Portland State University.
