Sacred Gallery NYC is pleased to announce;
Shamanic Skin: The Art of Magical Tattooing / A Photographic Exhibition by Lars Krutak
Opening Saturday, February 4th. 7-10pm
Exhibition runs from February 4th - 29th, 2012
Join us at the Sacred Gallery on Saturday the 4th of February 2012 for the NYC debut of
“Shamanic Skin: The Art of Magical Tattooing.” The exhibition features thirty selected works from the portfolio of tattoo anthropologist Dr. Lars Krutak.
The event is free and all are invited. The Sacred Gallery is located on the northeast corner of Broadway and Canal in Manhattan, New York City. The entire exhibition will be available for viewing February 4 through February 29th. Gallery hours are Noon to 8pm Daily.
In 1777, the word ‘tattoo’ was defined as ‘an indelible mark or figure fixed upon the body by insertion of pigment under the skin or by the production of scars.’ For thousands of years before that date, however, indigenous peoples practiced various forms of tattooing and scarification not only to beautify themselves or mark significant life achievements, but also to please or seek protection from particular spirits which inhabited their world.
For the past fifteen years, Dr. Lars Krutak has travelled the globe to document the religious beliefs behind permanent forms of tribal body modification. His photographic exhibition focuses upon the deeply spiritual realm of tattoo through an examination of these fascinating rituals.

For the past month, Sacred Tattoo has be working with the creative minds behind The Social Tattoo Project. A project that makes empathy a permanent part of peoples lives. Below is a bit of info on the project from the Social Tattoo Project Site.
"People care about a world crisis… for a week. But we think the world’s issues deserve more than just a moment of empathy.
The Social Tattoo Project is making empathy permanent. Our volunteers are getting tattoos that represent worldly issues, but they have no idea what their tattoos will be. They are letting you decide.
For each tattoo, we will post 4 trending topics on Twitter, and the most tweeted trend will be the subject of the tattoo. To vote, tweet #socialtattoo and your #favorite trend of the 4 to @social_tattoo . With your vote and our volunteers’ skin, we can make what the world empathizes with today, what we care about forever."
Later today we found that their project was picked up by the Huffington Post. Feel free to give it a read. These kids worked really hard on this project. We also wanted to thank both Matthew Adams and Jon Mesa for helping these guys out. You all were real troopers!
Lars Krutak, PhD to Speak at Sacred Tattoo July 30,2011
When it comes to tattoos, anthropologist Lars Krutak knows whereof he speaks — his hand-tapped, hand-poked, and skin-stitched tattoos and almost 1,000 razor and knife-cut scars testify to his journey to experience the roots of many ancient societies to understand tattoo as culture and to recreate the experience on his own body of what it might have been like being tattooed as it has been handed down through generations of tattooists.
Unimax is proud to present Dr. Krutak, on July 30th at 3PM, at Sacred Tattoo, 424 Broadway, N.Y.C., who will spend an hour revealing tattoo as a statement of worldviews, where humans, nature, and the supernatural are united. He will show where and how tattoo still represents the reenactment of ancient myths, ancestral traditions, and the actions of deities and cultural heroes. Video clips from his documentary series Tattoo Hunter, seen on the Discovery Channel supplement the presentation as well as some large format on-location photos by Krutak, from the collection of Wes Wood.
Dr. Krutak, PhD is an anthropologist at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. His books, The Tattooing Arts of Tribal Women (2007) and Kalinga Tattoo: Ancient and Modern Expressions of the Tribal (2010), will be available for signing at the event or you can pre-order them at Unimax Supply Co N.Y.C. by calling 212-925-1051, and have them signed at this unique Free event.
It's been a busy month here at Sacred. With two openings in the gallery, the NYC tattoo convention, multiple guest artists here, the normal crew rocking out some awesome pieces, things are off to a great start of the warm season!
We'll post pics from the tattoo convention in a day or so.
Here's a few shots of what's going on in the shop today.

As most of you know, the NYC tattoo convention is right around the corner.

Bili Vegas and Matthew Adams will be working the booth on Friday and Satruday.

There are some rumors that Shey will be making an appearance sometime throughout the weekend.

Also; Thursday, May 12th from 7-11pm, BUGS from LA will be showing in the gallery for his solo show titled "Purity In Motion." Since his show is the day before the tattoo convention, we've been hearing that BUGS show will also be the "unofficial" pre-party for the convention. More info on the show
can be found on our gallery website www.sacredgallerynyc.com
Sacred Tattoo NYC will be participating in the Inked For Autism fundraiser Saturday, April 2nd. If you'd be willing to get a small puzzle piece tattooed for $100, half of the proceeds will be donated to Autism Speaks.
Feel free to call the studio for more info!
::Inked for Autism:: is a partnership/ongoing fundraiser that will benefit Autism Speaks and Autism research. I have been contacting
some of the highest quality tattoo parlors across the country (places with true artists, opened 10 years or more with no violations) and
have spoken with some the owners. My husband and I have designed a tattoo that signifies Autism Awareness (it is a cross between
the Autism Speaks Jigsaw piece and the Autism Ribbon but not close enough for us to have to worry about copyright infringement). The
tattoo will be available for $100, with half the proceeds going to the participating tattoo parlor, and the other half going to Autism Speaks
to contribute to the funding of scientific research and therapies.
At first my thought was to just start locally with just a few parlors, however, interest is growing and I would like Opening Day to be at
least semi-national, as the possibilities are endless. We are always talking about our tattoos and how they mean “something". Well, this
tattoo really will MEAN something to more than just our selves. Anyone who gets this tattoo can be proud that they helped us get one
step closer to understanding the Autism puzzle. I already have several top tattoo parlors that are in, and there are many more I know
will want to be apart of ::Inked for Autism:: This is a win-win situation; there is absolutely no downside to this program: It will help raise
awareness, money, and bringing people to your shop. It is positive publicity and something your shop can be proud of being a part of,
