Los Angeles will have a little more ink following the introduction of a new tattoo art installation in LA’s Silverlake neighborhood. The mural was created as a kick off to the Bulleit Frontier Works project. This is the first piece in a series of projects Bulleit will commission to celebrate and unite the thriving creative collaborator community in Los Angeles and beyond.
The tattoo, which features Bulleit Frontier Whiskey’s iconic label alongside dozens of LA-inspired tattoo designs, was crafted by 24 tattoo artists who are locals of the Los Angeles area. The artists who contributed are people who have made a serious impact on the LA tattoo community, including Kim Saigh, Charles Belñavis, Henry Lewis, Shawn Barber and Jason Schroder. Each artist was given a section of the installation’s canvas to design and as a result every illustration carefully portrays Los Angeles in a way that is unique and personal to each artist. The sign took the tattoo artist over 90 hours to design and create.
To celebrate the installation, Bulleit hosted a party to thank the artist for their support and contribution to the tattoo industry. Take a closer look at the Bulleit billboard as well as pictures from the party below.
