VNA issue 22 Launch Party

We had a great time launching issue 22 of VNA on Thursday at The Outsiders Gallery, a huge thank you to everyone who came down grabbed a mag, drank plenty of Desperados and provided good company. Big thanks to the extended VNA crew for all their help, and to the Lazarides team, especially Alex Smith for organising it all and then of course we must thanks our drinks sponsor for the event… Desperados for keeping our thirst quenched and our evening merry. This is how it went down…

For those of you who dont know, the Burning Ink events are a chance to buy a piece of original artwork, have it tattoo’d on your skin before the art is burnt and destroyed leaving only the tattoo as the only record of the artwork. Its a great concept that has now happened in various cities across the world including London, Paris andNew York…
