I’ve been tattooing over 15 years now and teaching seminars over 7. I’ve taught seminars and workshops on tattooing and oil painting in Australia, Rome, Venice, Chicago, Boston, Portland, Seattle, New Mexico, and France. My passion is tattooing first, aesthetic artistic living second, and inspiring people most of all. I love speaking to groups and have done so for almost 20 years. My main purpose is to share insight to the way of tattooing which goes so much farther than which needles or pigments I use, I hold nothing back and will share every aspect of what I know and have learned over the years, I have tattooed in Japan and worldwide for years and have gleaned a varied and well rounded perspective of what I know to be “tattoo”. -Jeff Gogué

At the closing of the 2014 Bay Area Convention of the Tattoo Arts we will be hosting a private pop-up dinner & movie in celebration of the comradeship within the international tattoo community. The event will be held at the ATAK workspace & gallery in San Francisco on Sunday, Oktober 26th from 8pm to 12am.

Dinner will be offered in three courses with carnivore & vegan options, desert, wine, beer, mixed drinks, water, & oxygen. We are excited to be working with several San Francisco chefs on developing a seasonal & local market based menu & as such the bill of fare will be announced about one week prior to the event.

The films for the evening are also yet to be chosen but there is a good chance we'll dig up a few old yakuza flicks. Check back with this page for updates.

Cost for dinner is $70.00. Includes amuse-bouche, appetizer, intermezzo, entrée, & desert. Predinner drinks will be offered at the bar as well as throughout the evening.

Space is limited so please reserve your seat at the table asap. We look forward to convivial & entertaining evening with everyone.
