Art that adorns the flesh…

MusInk Still On in the O.C.

December 31st, 2008 by

The planned nationwide tour of MusInk Tattoo and Music Festival was cancelled last month, citing the “current economic climate” as the reason.

“I’m sad that this year’s festival will not go on as planned, but I’d rather the fans not be disappointed, as there were key elements that did not come together as originally designed,” Kat Von D – L.A. Ink diva and the festival’s creator – said publicly.

Although there are no plans to rekindle the tour, the festival – which combines hundreds of the world’s most famous and skilled tattoo artists alongside art exhibits, lifestyle vendors, skateboarding/BMX demos and hot musical acts – will still take place February 20 to 22, 2009, at the Orange County Fair and Exhibition Centre in Costa Mesa, California.

MusInk debuted last year in Orange County and was successful with over fifteen thousand people attending the three-day affair. Social Distortion and MOTÖRHEAD were originally headliners for this year’s festival but pulled out when MusInk announced it no longer had plans to tour. Instead look for Danzig, Reverend Horton Heat and Atreyu to rock the festival’s stage.
