Featured Artist: Ick Abrams

Here at Art Machine Productions, our goal is to bring you the best quality tattoo work possible in a relaxed studio atmosphere. You’ll find we’re not like other tattoo shops, from the way we look to the way we treat our clients. Here, you’re not just a number, you’re part of the family. In the spirit of bringing you the best studio experience, we’re going to feature artists from our staff so you can get to know them better, and hopefully that can help make your decision in finding an artist a little easier.

Say hello to Ick Abrams! Ick specializes in neotraditional with heavy, creepy influence from horror, the occult, and all that is metal. Pay him a visit for your next tattoo!

Live Through This: A Suicide Awareness and Prevention Charity Event

Here at Art Machine Productions, Suicide Awareness and Prevention are incredibly important topics that are close to our hearts. You may recall our April 6, 2012 art show "Still Fly" which benefited The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention as well as The Trevor Project. On May 6, 2016 we're teaming up with someone who does awareness a little differently. Live Through This is a photography project that showcases portraits of suicide attempt survivors alongside their stories.

We hope to shine a light on the topic once more with this special event. Join us May 6, 2016 for a special walk-in tattoo event at Art Machine Productions from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. featuring $50 - $150 flash specials. From 7 p.m. - 10 p.m. we'll be hosting a first Friday art gallery event featuring the artwork of many talented local (and some not so local) artists who have graciously donated the sale of their artwork to fund the Live Through This Project. Don't worry! We'll have some snacks and beverages for you to graze on while you're visiting the gallery that evening! All proceeds of the tattoo and art gallery event benefit Live Through This.

Everyone who donates will be entered into a drawing to win some really cool prizes, including gift certificates to Art Machine Productions.
In addition we will also be holding a very special tattoo event. Next Sunday (special start time of 11am!) we will be doing discounted tattoos (priced between $50 & $100) with 100% of the proceeds going to Philabundance!
