Turnon: Tattoos. Out Now!
Ignite Licensing sure knows how to throw a party! To celebrate the book “Turnon: Tattoos,” the Munch Gallery in New York had a one night only gala reception, book signing and art exhibit featuring the work of Michael Alago, Isauro Cairo, Walt Cessna, Aaron Corbett, Joan Crisol, Scooter LaForge, Ves Pitts and Wilsonmodels. Does it get any better than being in the same room as Chad Ferro and Scooter LaForge at the same time? Doubtful. Enjoy some photos from this amazing night after the jump. There might be some gay male nudity in one of the pictures, but it’s legal now so you don’t have to worry about breaking any laws. But if you still have a closed mind, don’t say I didn’t warn you. Also you can see some hotties you are now legally allowed to marry in the state of New York – subject to availability, of course.

Ladies and gentlemen… Miss Grace Jones. Grace Jones celebrates her birthday today and we wish her a very happy one. I wouldn’t have thought it at the time, but her concert a couple of years ago was one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. The crowd went absolutely nuts, everyone was decked out in crazy outfits, but none as crazy as Grace Jones’. In fact, she changed outfits after each song – with each succeeding outfit being more outrageous than the one before it. Shameless plug: you can purchase a limited edition print of Grace Jones, taken by yours truly on Ignite Licensing’s official website. If you are not in the mood for this print, don’t worry, there’s plenty of other great art at very affordable prices.
Also born today: Malcolm X, The Who’s Pete Townsend, the Ramones’ Joey Ramone and wrestler turned street art legend Andre The Giant. Obey!

IGNITE is an artist representation and consulting company which specializes in licensing, branding, fashion, merchandise design, publishing, limited editions and exhibitions. They sell original artwork from legends such as Ron English, Scooter LaForge, Olek and Deryck Todd, just to name a few artists. All of these works are available for extremely reasonable prices as well. I’ve been a big fan of this site for a long time and with great pleasure and pride, I’d like to make a huge announcement: 3 photos I’ve taken of the legendary singer Grace Jones are for sale on IGNITE’s official website as limited edition 8×10 prints! Each print is numbered and hand-signed by me and they look wonderful. My arm is still tired from signing them all, but the results have been worth every second! I’m not just saying that because I am the artist either. One of the photos is already ranked on their top sellers list and once again, I am humbled and honored just to be included on a website filled with artists I respect and admire! Christmas is coming up, so remember that while the rest of the world crashes and burns, the value of art never depreciates. Take your art collection to the next level with IGNITE!
