ISTANBUL will host the 6th edition of the Art Show, which follows stops in Paris, New York, Berlin, London and Madrid.The exhibition will run from March 29th to April 12th in the MILK Gallery in the lively area of Beyoglu. Surely, there’s no need to explain Burning Ink anymore, which has become a unique event combining the worlds of illustration and tattoo, with a unique and radical concept. Nobody can buy the original drawings that will be burnt at the end of the exhibition, on the 12th of April, during the closing party. The only way for the drawings to survive the flames is to be bought and inked into the buyers’ skin, making each design live on as a truly unique tattoo.
