Tonight, First Friday attendees can take a break, grab a drink and a doughnut and raise money for Youth on Record, a non-profit that provides music classes for young people in treatment facilities, at Tattooers on Deck, a silent auction bidding off custom-painted skateboard decks from several tattoo artists, including Adam Rose, the owner of Fallen Owl Tattoos and curator of the event. "Tattoo shops have a lot of bad stigmas with bikers and criminals, and we want to show the community we are professional artists giving back to our roots," says Rose.
The auction goes down at The Hole from 6 to 10 p.m. with bidding for the decks starting at $50. 100 percent of the proceeds go to Youth on Record. Curious about the wares? Check out pictures of just some of the decks below.
