About the exhibition: In 2017, tattoo and fine artist Daniel James of Full Moon Tattoo and Regina L. Brejda of 4P Studios coordinated to bring Augusta its first showcase of original fine art created by a variety of local tattoo artists. The exhibition held in October of that year at the 600 Broad Gallery was widely received with positive reviews and much success. In 2019, 4P Studios was excited to add Charlie Baker of Mr. Tattoo to the planning committee for this annual event.
4P Studios continues to make this display of fine art an annual tradition within the tattoo and art communities. We hope you will join us in supporting and celebrating local talent.
