PORK CHOPS. Pick one. Sit down. Shut up.

Art Exhibition Celebrating East Bay Tattooing

PORK CHOPS is a celebration of the East Bay tattoo flash tradition. Dedicated to the street shop design on the wall where you had no choice and you were scared as shit of your tattooer. Pork chops were the most popular tattoo designs cut out and assembled on one flash sheet. It was those designs that were sold the most going from ground round to pork chop. The pork chop was loved and hated by veteran and rookie tattooers. The repetition could be torturous. But after decades of tattooing the designs became bread and butter. The founding tattooers didn’t go to art school and didn’t have business degrees. They were genuine outlaws. Although Amor Eterno Arte bears little resemblance to the shops of old, we honor and celebrate our tough as nails roots.

Exhibition dates: 04.29.17-06.30.17

Gallery

 Amor Eterno Arte was started by local artists Amy George Cortez and Chamuco Cortez. Amy has been working in art galleries and museums with a community + non-profit focus for 15 years. Chamuco has been tattooing for 17 years all over the Bay Area. Chamuco is known for his black and grey, Aztec and portraits tattoos. They began Amor Eterno Arte to present a safe space for folks to experience art, create and express themselves.
