Star Wars fans are gonna love this Straight Outta Tattooine art exhibition at Oddity Tattoo!
Oddity Tattoo Studio and Gallery prepared for the Star Wars hype in a rather awesome way. Since December 12th the tattoo shop has been the location of a Star Wars themed art exhibition, but don't think you've missed out because the 'Straight Outta Tattooine' exhibition runs until January 31st!!
Owner and artist of Oddity Tattoo Travis Franklin was inspired to hold a Star Wars themed event after a discussion at one of the shop's regular drawing nights...
“I was interested right off the bat..My favorite toys as a child were a Millennium Falcon and a Darth Vader figurine that were hand-me-downs from my three older brothers. It was a family thing; we all loved it. I think it’s so popular because people want to dream outside of their world, sometimes.”
'Straight Outta Tattooine' features the work of over thirty local artists, including the shops own resident tattoo artists. Oddity artist Will Ralston saw the creative potential of the event immediately.
“As an artist, it’s hard not to be influenced by it...It’s like the Flintstones Vitamins of movies. It’s got elements of fantasy, science fiction, action and romance — what else could you ask for?”
For those still on a Star Wars high or wanting something from a galaxy far far away to keep them going the 'Straight Outta Tattooine' exhibition offers just that, so if you're in the area be sure to check it out and enjoy brilliant Star Wars themed art!
Oddity Tattoo is located at 1778 Main St., Sarasota.
