8 of Swords resident tattooer and fine artist Zoe Bean’s most recent solo art exhibition did not disappoint.

8 of Swords resident artist Zoe Bean debuted her first solo art exhibition this weekend at the cozy Brooklyn tattoo shop and it did not disappoint.

Bean’s artistic sensitivity, as we’ve seen consistently in her tattoos, shone brighter than ever in “Keepsake.” The walls of 8 of Swords lent themselves to one insanely detailed reinterpretation after another— some displayed traditionally in simple frames and others encased in tiny cameos hung with ribbon.

The many eager onlookers alternated between basking in the sheer impressiveness of Bean’s attention to detail, making trips to the bar sponsored by Flying Dog Brewery and Sailor Jerry, and chatting with equally enthusiastic guests over a soundtrack consisting of everything from Blondie to Biggie. It was, without a doubt, a night to remember.

Congratulations to Zoe on a wildly successful opening night of “Keepsake.” If you didn’t make it to the party, fear not  —  the show runs through July 10th. And to be honest, any excuse to hang out with the 8 of Swords crew is a good one.
