Artist Joins Ink Master’s Joey Hamilton in Support of ‘Vegas Strong’
Longtime collector of Peter Lik Fine Art Photography, and winner of Ink Masters’ third season, Joey “Hollywood” Hamilton, opened the doors to his world famous Revolt Tattoos shop on Friday, October 27 from 10am to 10pm, offering free Vegas Strong tattoos to all attendees donating $100 or more in support of those affected by the recent tragedy. In a show of unity, Peter gifted the cause a copy of his award-winning anthology, Equation of Time, and a Las Vegas Element Pack, which were raffled off to a lucky few in the inked-up crowd.
By 10am that Friday morning, there was a seemingly endless line of philanthropic tattoo enthusiasts, wrapped around the entire block, waiting for a turn under Hamilton’s needle: “The event could not have been more successful or exciting,” says LIK USA’s National Sales Director (and event attendee), Jeremy Meeter. “Joey has been a longtime fan of Pete’s work, and it was the ultimate thrill to finally bring these two legends together for an amazing cause.” In fact, as a result of this epic team-up, regulars at Revolt Tattoo may soon be seeing an actual Peter Lik original hanging on its walls.
All proceeds from Revolt Tattoos’ fundraiser will be donated to the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund, and at last check, the total had already climbed well into the tens of thousands: “Getting to share the beauty of this world with my own community, and help those affected, is an opportunity I would never pass up, adds Peter. “Working with Joey and his crew on providing charity through art was a total pleasure, and just another example of the strength and resilience of the amazing people of Las Vegas.
