Johnny Depp Denies Slapping Amber Heard Three Times After She Mocked His Winona Ryder Tattoo – Deadline07.09.20

(Press Association) Johnny Depp has denied slapping his ex-wife Amber Heard after she laughed at his Wino Forever tattoo, as he faced further questioning on the second day of high-profile libel action against The Sun newspaper.

The Hollywood actor rejected suggestions he slapped Heard three times during a time when he had fallen off the wagon after she made a joke of the etching on his arm saying that is not true, you are mistaken. The 57-year-old was asked about the alleged incident as he re-entered the witness box to give evidence in his claim.

Depp is suing the tabloids publisher, News Group Newspapers (NGN), and its executive editor, Dan Wootton, over the 2018 article, which labelled him a wife-beater and referred to overwhelming evidence that he attacked Heard, 34, during their relationship which he strenuously denies.

Sasha Wass QC, for NGN, asked Depp about the alleged incident in March 2013, which Depp agreed was at a time when he had fallen off the wagon following about 160 days of sobriety. It involved a tattoo the actor had done on his arm during his relationship with actress Winona Ryder, which read Winona Forever and which he had changed to Wino Forever after they split.

Wass put it to Depp that he had slapped Heard three times after she laughed at the tattoo during a period where he was drinking heavily.

She said: Do you accept that Ms Heard was making a joke out of your tattoo, Wino Forever?

Depp replied: I dont recall any conversation.

Sasha Wass QC continued: I suggest that that provoked disappointment, firstly, in you, and then anger in you, but you dont remember.

Depp replied: I dont recall any argument about any of my tattoos.

Wass said: You then, Mr Depp, slapped Ms Heard across the face.

The actor responded: That is not correct, its untrue. It didnt happen.

Wass said: You slapped her more than once, because after you slapped her the first time, she didnt react, she just eyeballed you, she just stared at you, and that made you more angry and you slapped her again.

Depp answered: That is patently untrue.

Wass then put it to the actor that he slapped his former wife three times in total during the incident, to which he replied: Im sorry but that is not true, you are mistaken.

The barrister then put it to Depp that he broke down after coming to his senses and realizing what he had done, to which he said: I didnt hit Ms Heard.

Heard claims that Depp first hit her in early 2013 one of 14 separate allegations of domestic violence, all denied by Depp, relied on by NGN in their defense.

Wass had opened the second day of Depps cross-examination by asking the actor about his drug use, saying: Were you taking cocaine in March 2013? Depp replied that it was difficult to recollect if I was taking cocaine in March 2013 its possible.

The barrister later told the court that Heard had told Depp that she knew all about addiction because her father and, indeed, also her mother had also been drug users. Depp said that was true and that he became very close with Heards father and mother. But the actor denied that Heard had said she could help him with his drug use.

The actors case against NGN and Wootton arises out of the publication of an article on The Suns website on April 27 2018 with the headline Gone Potty: How can JK Rowling be genuinely happy casting wife-beater Johnny Depp in the new Fantastic Beasts film?

NGN is defending the article as true and says Depp was controlling and verbally and physically abusive towards Ms Heard, particularly when he was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs between early 2013 and May 2016, when the couple split.

In a written outline of the actors case, his barrister, David Sherborne, said the article made defamatory allegations of the utmost seriousness against Depp, accusing him of committing serious assaults on Heard and inflicting such serious injuries that she feared for her life.

Sherborne said: The articles amount to a full-scale attack on the claimant as a wife beater, guilty of the most horrendous physical abuse. The claimants position is clear Ms Heards allegations are complete lies. The claimant was not violent towards Ms Heard, it was she who was violent to him.

He added: The marriage was at times physical, at her instigation, and on occasions he found it necessary to defend himself from her violence. He is not a wife-beater and never has been.

A separate libel claim brought by Depp against Heard in the US, over a December 2018 column in the Washington Post which said the actress received the full force of our cultures wrath for women who speak out but did not mention Depp by name, is due to begin next January. The pair met in 2011 and began living together in 2012 before marrying in Los Angeles in February 2015.

The trial continues.

Beauticians, tattoo parlous and tanning salons to reopen from Monday in latest coronavirus lockdown easing – Evening Standard07.09.20

The latest headlines in your inbox twice a day Monday - Friday plus breaking news updates

The Culture Secretary said beauticians, tattoo parlours and tanning salons can reopen from Monday in the latest easing of the coronavirus lockdown.

It follows Oliver Dowden's announcement that outdoor swimming pools in England will begin reopening from Saturday, with indoor pools, gyms and other sports facilities to follow on July 25

He told the Downing Street press conference: Having allowed hairdressers to reopen, beauticians, tattooists, spas, tanning salons and other close contact services can now do the same, Im pleased to say, from Monday.

Of course that will be subject to some restrictions on particularly high-risk services.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has also published guidance to enable competitive grassroots team sports to resume, beginning with cricket this weekend.

Outdoor arts performances including theatres, opera, dance and music will also be able to resume from the weekend although audience numbers will be restricted and will be subject to social distancing rules.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said a change in planning rules will also mean theatres, concert halls and live music venues will be protected from demolition or change of use by developers, stopping those that have been made temporarily vacant during lockdown disappearing altogether.

Mr Dowden said in a statement: Our culture, heritage and arts are too precious to lose. Thats why were protecting venues like theatres from redevelopment if they fall on hard times.

We are also giving further clarity on restart dates in our roadmap back to performance. From July 11 we can all enjoy performances outdoors with social distancing and we are working hard to get indoor audiences back as soon as we safely can, following pilots.

A road map to live performances will also be set (PA)

Mr Dowden even deployed a new slogan in the coronavirus fight, saying it is now time to work out to help out.

He told the Downing Street press conference: Im really urging people to get out there and to play their part: buy the tickets for outdoor plays and musical recitals, get to your local gallery and support your local businesses.

Our fight began with a collective effort and I really hope it will end with one. At the beginning we all stayed at home to protect the NHS and save lives, now the British public has a new part to play. Its time to eat out to help out, to enjoy the arts to help out and to work out to help out.

Its over to all of you to help the country recover safely.

Tattoo artists are desperate to re-open in Wales and don’t understand why they can’t – Wales Online07.09.20

Equipment is single-use, surfaces are sterilised hourly, each member of staff is trained in health and safety and the smell of anti-bacterial spray will hit your nostrils as soon as you walk through the door.

But, despite this, tattoo parlours have still not been given any idea when they will be able to turn their tattoo guns back on and welcome back customers.

If coronavirus numbers continue to fall, the Welsh Government will allow restaurants, bars and cafes with outdoor spaces to re-open from July 13.

Self-contained caravan parks and hotels are hoping to open by July 11, and hairdressers have started booking in clients from July 13.

But many tattoo artists say they are angry and frustrated by the lack of guidance available for their industry.

Dai Williams manages Dai's Tattoo Studio in Station Road, Llanelli.

"At any tattoo studio it's hospital, surgical rules - that's how clean it is," the 45-year-old said.

"We've always been following these hygienic guidelines.

"Everything is single-use, every surface is sterilised after use, we wear gloves, I've made shields and extra masks for customers, there's tape down on the shop floor and sanitising stations.

"We'll work by appointment only and won't have any walk-ins or anyone coming into the shop.

"There's not much I have to change about the way we work."

He said he would not be tattooing the chest, face or neck area if he re-opened.

Many tattoo artists were hoping that the Welsh Government would allow them to re-open alongside hair salons on July 13, but the Welsh Government said it needed to look at how hairdressers re-opened before giving beauticians and tattooists the green light to start working again.

But tattoo artists have argued that other businesses such as pubs where social distancing is difficult to adhere to have been given a re-opening date.

"It's very frustrating when you see pubs and businesses where people are in close proximity to each other being allowed to reopen when we are far more hygienic," added tattoo artist Dai.

"A pint isn't essential, going to the shops isn't really essential. There's a real lack of communication."

Dai said he'd had some financial aid from the government and was confident there would be plenty of interest from clients when they got the go-ahead to re-open.

"That money is not going to last forever but we've had loads of messages from people wanting us to open so I'm confident about the future," he said.

"I would open back up tomorrow if we could."

Abi Gadd, who is known professionally as Abi Eve, runs her own private studio in Porthcawl.

The 29-year-old said the lack of any real information was the hardest part, especially considering she was heavily pregnant.

"It's frustrating because I think there is lack of understanding about the industry from the people making the decisions," she said.

"Tattoo studios aren't these seedy places that people think they are.

"I think the people in power would be really surprised at how hygienic they are and how many rules we follow. Maybe if they looked into it more they might understand the frustration."

Abi said she believed little would need to be done to make the tattoo studio environment safe for customers.

"My studio is private, it's appointment only, I wear gloves and an apron and sterilise everything. All surfaces are wrapped and disinfected. It wouldn't be a new way of working for me.

"The only things I would change is send out the tattoo form digitally before the appointment and wear masks. I've postponed some pieces as I would only be tattooing the lower body and legs."

With a new baby on the way, Abi said she previously hoped to spend the past couple of months making as much money as possible before going on maternity leave, but has instead been left with little income due to the pandemic.

She said: "I was hoping to work hard and save for the past couple of months especially because summer is usually the busiest time of the year and I still have to pay rent on the studio but I'm lucky I've been able to have a government grant.

"I agree that a tattoo is a luxury and isn't essential but neither is an expensive haircut or going to the pub and for me, getting my business up and running and getting an income is essential."

As a pregnant woman Abi is also considered in the high-risk category but insisted she would feel safe and comfortable in her studio.

She said: "I'd like to go back to work for a couple of weeks and earn some money before going off on maternity. I'd cut my appointments down to only around two a day and would put mine and my clients' safety first."

The new lockdown changes in Wales:

Questions have also been raised as to whether the tattooing process can spread the virus, but the Welsh Blood Service said there was no evidence that any type of coronavirus could be transmitted through blood transfusion.

Rich Jones, 37, who works as a freelance artist in Carmarthen said tattoo artists were all trained in blood borne viruses and only used single-use needles.

"I don't think it can be the tattooing itself that we are not allowed to open for because every tattoo artist knows how to work with needles anyway to prevent viruses like HIV."

He added: "The people who are in power won't have ever stepped foot in a tattoo studio before. They won't know how we work, how sterilised every surface is or how much training we have."

The 37-year-old artist, who has been tattooing all around the world for 15 years, said: "I think we'll be one of the last to re-open, sports events will start again before us. It'll be another prime example of how the arts are undervalued and everything else is thought of before."

First Minister Mark Drakeford answered a question about the tattoo industry during his #AskFMWales session on social media.

He said: "We remain hopeful that at the end of next week, we will be able to give the go ahead for hairdressers to re-open from the following Monday. It will depend on the state of coronavirus at the time.

"Were going to learn from how hairdressers are able to open, and show they can open safely and if they can then we will have the confidence to move on to other places where people can not operate at a two metre distance, like tattooists."

"We need a successful experience of hairdressers re-opening safely to give us the confidence to open more," added the first minister.

Gym, spa and salon owners cheer green light to reopen this month – Yahoo Sport UK07.09.20

Gym, spa and salon owners have cheered the Governments latest rollback on current lockdown restrictions to allow them to reopen sites later this month.

Nail bars, beauty salons and spas will be able to reopen to the public from Monday with safety restrictions in place, the Government announced.

Meanwhile, gyms and leisure centres will be able to reopen from July 25, while restrictions will also relax on outdoor entertainment and amateur sport.

Richard Darwin, chief executive of The Gym Group which runs 179 gyms across the UK, said he was delighted by the announcement.

Gyms will be able to reopen from July 25 (The Gym Group/PA)

Reopening gyms is an important step forward for the physical and mental wellbeing of our members and millions of other gym goers, and we cant wait to welcome them all back, he said.

We are really confident our new procedures will ensure that we can operate safely, with distanced equipment, enhanced cleaning and our busyness tracker to help manage the number of people in the gym.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said the Government has made a number of positive visits to gyms in recent weeks as firms in the sector were eager to reopen for the first time since March.

He said that sites will need to introduce measures such as booking times systems, reduced class sizes, spaced out equipment and enhanced cleaning, in order to welcome customers again.

Duncan Bannatyne, owner of health club and spa firm Bannatyne Group and star of Dragons Den, said: I am incredibly pleased that we have a definite date for reopening our 57 health clubs in England.

The fitness sector is vitally important, both for the nations health and the economy.

In my discussions with ministers over the last week or so, I was gratified that they understood that the majority of health clubs could reopen safely and that it was essential to do so.

Tanning salons and tattoo parlours are among businesses which will be able to reopen from the start of next week.

The Feel Good Group, which runs 90 tanning salons across the UK, welcomed the Governments decision to allow its shops to reopen on July 13, but said they should be able to reopen immediately.

Adam Mooney, founder and chief executive, said: While we welcome the decision to finally allow us to reopen, the Government could have allowed us to open last week, when hairdressers reopened.

We are ready to reopen today, not next week.

More than 90% of our staff are women, and most in the 18 to 25-year-old age group, which is the demographic which has been worst hit financially by the pandemic, and they are very keen to get back to work.

Mike Cherry, national chair of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), said: Its good news to see the Government announce the reopening of thousands more small firms across England.

Beauticians, nail salons, gyms and the wider fitness sector have faced months without customers, and theyll be pleased to see that they can finally get back to business.

Tattoo Pain Chart: Where It Hurts Most and Least, and More07.09.20

We include products we think are useful for our readers. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Heres our process.

Tattoos are among the most common body decorations globally. According to a 2010 study, a whopping 38 percent of people 18 to 29 years old have been inked at least once in their lives.

A natural question to ask is, Does getting a tattoo hurt?

While most people will say yes, in reality this is a complex question to answer.

Tattooing involves repeatedly piercing your skins top layer with a sharp needle covered with pigment. So getting a tattoo is generally always painful, though people may experience different levels of pain.

People who are biologically male tend to experience and cope with pain differently from those who are biologically female. In addition, the various parts of the body experience different levels of pain when tattooed.

While there is no scientific evidence that says which areas of the body will feel the most and least pain when getting inked, we gathered anecdotal information from sites run by people in the tattoo industry.

Heres the general consensus: The least painful places to get tattooed are those with the most fat, fewest nerve endings, and thickest skin. The most painful places to get tattooed are those with the least fat, most nerve endings, and thinnest skin. Bony areas usually hurt a lot.

Read on to find out which spots are likely to be most and least painful.

Everyone experiences pain in different ways. The placement of your tattoo, as well as what your sex is, can affect the pain. Here, well take a closer look at the most and least painful places to get tattooed.

Its likely most painful to get a tattoo on a part of your body with many nerve endings, close to bones without much fat, or where your skin is very thin. Pain in these areas may be high to severe.

The armpit is among the most painful places, if not the most painful place, to get tattooed. The pain youll experience getting tattooed here is very severe. In fact, most tattoo artists advise against people getting armpit tattoos.

The rib cage is probably the second most painful place for most people to get tattooed. Pain here can be severe. The skin around your ribs is extremely thin, and theres less fat here than on most other parts of your body.

Also, every time you breathe, you move your rib cage and the skin above it, which can make the feeling of being tattooed here much more intense.

Your ankle bones and shinbones lie just beneath thin layers of skin, making it very painful to be tattooed in these areas. Ankle and shin tattoos usually cause severe pain. Its about the same level of pain caused by tattooing over your rib cage.

Nipples and breasts are extremely sensitive areas, so being tattooed here can cause severe pain.

Your groin is filled with nerve endings that can be irritated by tattoo needles. Pain here can be high to severe.

Your elbows and kneecaps are areas where your bones lie just beneath your skin. Vibrations caused by tattooing over bone can cause high to severe pain.

This is another part of the body where you may experience severe pain when being tattooed. The area behind your knees has loose, stretchy skin with many nerve endings. These characteristics make this area very sensitive to tattoo needles.

Because your hip bones lie just below your skin, getting hip tattoos can cause severe pain. This is especially true if you are very thin and have less fat around your hips to cushion your hip bones.

Neck and spine tattoos are known to be among the most painful tattoos because the neck and spine are very sensitive areas.

Like the neck, your head, face, and ears contain many nerve endings that can be irritated during a tattoo and may cause severe pain. Theres not a lot of fat on your head, face, and ears, so you dont have much of a cushion for the tattoo needle here.

The skin on and around your lips is generally loose with lots of nerve endings. A tattoo on your lips will almost certainly cause severe pain, and could lead to bleeding, swelling, and bruising.

The tops and insides of the hands and feet, as well as fingers and toes, are popular places to be tattooed. Being tattooed anywhere on your hands and feet can cause severe pain. The skin here very thin, and it contains numerous nerve endings that can trigger pain when hit by a tattoo needle.

Whats more, when nerves in your hands and feet are disturbed by a tattoo needle, they may undergo painful spasms that make the tattooing experience very unpleasant.

Stomach tattoos may cause pain that ranges from high to severe.

The level of pain you experience depends on what kind of shape youre in. People with higher body weights tend to have looser skin on their stomachs than people with lower body weights.

A person with tighter skin over their stomach is likely to experience less pain than a person with looser skin in this area.

While the muscle inside your inner bicep can reduce the amount of pain of getting tattooed in this area, the skin here tends to be soft and loose. Getting tattooed on your inner bicep can cause a high amount of pain, but doesnt usually cause severe pain.

Tattoos here generally take longer than other parts of the body to heal.

Areas that likely cause the least amount of pain when tattooed tend to be padded with some fat, have tight skin, have few nerve endings, and arent close to bones. Pain in these areas will be low to moderate.

Some of the least painful spots include:

This part of the body is well padded with fat and has few nerve endings. The upper outer thigh is one of the least painful places to get a tattoo, with pain low to low-moderate in most people.

Theres a lot of muscle and thick skin on your forearms, without many nerve endings. Tattoos on the forearms usually cause a low to low-moderate amount of pain.

The outer part of your shoulders has thick skin with few nerve endings, making it one of the least painful places to get tattooed. The pain of being tattooed here is usually low to low-moderate.

The outer bicep has a lot of muscle without a lot of nerve endings, making it a good place for a tattoo that wont cause a lot of pain. Outer bicep tattoos usually cause low to low-moderate levels of pain.

There is a significant amount of fat and muscle on the calves, and few nerve endings, so calf tattoos usually arent too painful. You can expect to feel low to low-moderate levels of pain here.

Getting a tattoo on your upper or lower back usually causes low-moderate to moderate amounts of pain because skin here is thick with few nerve endings. The further away you tattoo from the bones and nerve endings in your spine and hips, the less pain youll feel.

Several things may affect how you feel pain:

Research suggests that people who are biologically women experience sensations of pain more intensely than men. This may be due to physical and chemical differences between womens and mens bodies.

On the other hand, scientists have also found that women are more accepting of pain than men.

However, theres no specific research suggesting women experience more pain while getting tattoos than men or vice versa.

Research suggests that people who have had tattoos may have a higher pressure pain threshold compared to those who have never had a tattoo.

While not supported by research, its possible that age and weight may make tattoos more painful.

Older skin may be more likely to bruise or feel pain than younger skin.

Heavier people may have looser skin, which could also be more sensitive to tattoos. Conversely, people with very low body fat might also feel more pain.

The way you experience pain and the placement of your tattoo can greatly affect how it feels to get inked.

Again, this hasnt been proven scientifically, but certain types of pain are well-known in the tattoo community.

There are a few general sensations commonly felt when getting a tattoo. Being familiar with these sensations before getting tattooed can give you an idea of what you can expect to feel and how to tell when your pain isnt normal.

Common types of tattoo pain include:

Burning pain feels like having something very hot pressed against your skin for an extended period.

Its most commonly felt in areas a tattoo artist has worked on for a long time, caused by a combination of your skins rawness and the repeated trauma resulting from a tattoo needle piercing your skin in the same place. Its also common in areas with more fat beneath the skin.

Burning pain isnt usually intense, but it can be very irritating.

Tattoo artists say this is the best kind of pain you could feel while getting tattooed.

When the needle revs up with its loud buzz and the needles sharp prick first hits your skin, your bodys reaction is to start producing stress hormones like adrenaline. These hormones actually work to numb the pain into feeling like a dull ache in the background.

During your tattoo session, you may feel this dull pain change or intensify at times. Youre more likely to stay in the dull pain phase if youre distracted by another activity while being tattooed, such as talking to your artist, listening to music, or watching TV.

Scratching pain is the most common sensation experienced when youre getting a tattoo. This kind of pain can feel like an intense scratch moving across the tattooed area, as if a cat were dragging its claws across your skin.

While this pain isnt usually intense, it can hurt a lot if your tattoo artist works on the same area for a long time. It also tends to hurt more when multiple needles are used at the same time, rather than a single needle. This is the case when your artist adds shading to your tattoo.

Sharp or stinging pain can be described as many tiny bee stings. This kind of pain is usually quite intense, and it feels like the needle is poking deep into your skin. Its sometimes enough to make you want to move away from the tattoo needle!

This kind of pain is most commonly felt when a tattoo artist is using fewer needles, or just one needle, to add very fine detail or make the outline of your tattoo. Body parts with thinner or tighter skin are more likely to feel sharp or stinging pain, like the wrists and biceps.

While experienced tattoo artists know what theyre doing, its possible for newbies to mess up a new tattoo. Sharp or stinging pain thats very intense might actually mean your tattoo artist is pushing their needles too deeply into your skin.

This can cause a tattoo deformity called a tattoo blowout, which leads to a tattoos ink dispersing below just the very top layers of skin that should be tattooed. The end result is a very painful and blurry tattoo.

You can prevent tattoo blowout by using a highly experienced tattoo artist and avoiding tattooing on very thin skin.

You may experience vibrating pain when youre getting tattooed in a very bony place, such as these areas:

When a tattoo needle pierces skin above bone, nerves in your bones may pick up the vibrating sensation, especially if the needle is moving at a very high speed. This causes vibrating pain.

Vibrating pain isnt usually intense, but it doesnt exactly tickle either. Youre more likely to experience vibrating pain if youre thinner and have less skin and fat over your bones.

Here are a few tips to minimize tattoo pain:

Tattoos may take minutes to hours to add to your body, but they last a lifetime. Pain should be only one consideration of getting a tattoo. Removing a tattoo is a much more time-consuming and painful process, and has mixed results.

Before getting a tattoo, consider:

Getting a tattoo is a painful experience for everyone. But there are factors affecting how much pain you as an individual experience while getting inked. Things like sex, skin condition, and tattoo placement can affect how much it hurts to get a tattoo.

Make sure youre aware of the pain, complications, and risks of tattoo regret before you head to the tattoo parlor.

Halsey Got a Hand Tattoo As a Tribute to Juice WRLD – Allure07.09.20

The pandemic hasn't stopped some of your favorite celebrities from getting tattooed, especially now that some studios are opening up again. Case in point: Cardi B showed off two new tattoos (one of which was a touch-up to her iconic phoenix) in late May and early June. Now, singer Halsey is the latest to get new ink, and this one is a tribute to her late friend and musician Jarad Anthony Higgins, more commonly known as Juice WRLD.

Halsey debuted her new tattoo with fans just a few hours after Higgins's family shared that his posthumous album would be released July 10. On Monday, July 6, she posted the photo with a simple caption just a few hearts and tagged both the tattoo artist and Higgins. It simply states "life's a mess 999" in a cursive black font right below the knuckles on what appears to be her left hand.

The phrase "life's a mess" is a reference to the new single the two artists collaborated on, and 999 is something that Higgins had tattooed on his own body and referenced multiple times throughout his career. In a previous interview with Tidal from December 2019, he shared that the "999" was "666" inverted, and no, he wasn't referencing Satan. The three numbers had a deeper message for Higgins specifically, "taking whatever ill, whatever bad situation, whatever struggle you're going through and turning it into something positive to push yourself forward."

The minimalist tattoo was completed by Los Angeles-based tattoo artist Noah Lee, who has worked with Halsey before on the Q and diamond tattoos that sit right in front of her ear. The new heartfelt symbol may not replace her friend, but we hope that Halsey and Higgins's family find the healing and peace they need.

Carytown tattoo shop owner auctioning off George Floyd mural to benefit nonprofit – wtvr.com07.09.20

RICHMOND, Va - Local tattoo artist Jesse Smith, who owns Loose Screw Tattoo in Carytown, knew his usual style would not match the mood or the moment when he set out to paint a mural of George Floyd more than a month ago.

My style is kind of a goofy, cartoony style, he said. George Floyd's face has become more than just George Floyd... its a representation of something bigger.

The plywood board that Smith placed over the front door of his shop in June has displayed the face of the Minneapolis man, whose killing under the knee of a police officer sparked global protests, including Richmond.

Smith is now partnering with a local organization to auction the work and raise money to help low income Richmonders.

I have a lot of friends who are in pain over that situation, Smith said.

After an initial round of protest that saw the destruction of property in downtown Richmond, many businesses boarded up windows and doors in response. Since then, plywood and walls have transformed into canvass for artistic expression in many parts of downtown Richmond.

Much of the public facing artwork that has come following Floyds killing, more than 1,200 miles from Richmond, illustrates the deep set pain in the Black community caused by systemic racism and a call to action to change them.

Phrases like we need to talk and truth to power are painted on boards up and down Broad Street in the Arts District.

Its just this innate feeling that we have to decorate, but also communicate, Smith said of the artistic community in Richmond. You know, art is a visual communication of the times that are happening right now.

Smith and local organization MAD RVA are partnering to auction off the mural, and all of the proceeds would go to the group. MAD RVA provides mutual aid, like food and supplies, and mini-grants to help out low income residents in Richmond.

At this point in my career, I dont keep any of my art after I finish it, I typically sell it. But obviously with this one, I felt like it was distasteful to sell it and keep the money, Smith said. Its good to know you can take your art and transform it into helping other people.

Loose Screw Tattoo has faced backlash since the mural has been very public facing in front of the Carytown shop. Smith says he sees the mural as his contribution to the scope of deeper conversations at play right now.

When we started to promote this online, we lost a lot of followers, which I was really surprised about. Its really unfortunate, he said. We should all be able to agree that Black Lives Matter. But I think people have this thought in their head as what Black Lives Matter represents, other than Black Lives Matter... Black lives do matter, and we should definitely work to support them.

The auction for the mural is live and runs through July 17. Anyone can place a bid by visiting this website.

East Lansing tattoo shop reopens after months of being closed – WLNS07.09.20

After months of being closed, Splash of Color Tattoo & Piercing Studio, in East Lansing is back in business.

Despite getting the green light from Gov. Whitmer back in June, Kris Lachance owner of Splash, says she didnt want to rush any safety precautions.

I was just hesitant to rush into anything and I wanted to make sure that we had a plan in place, she said.

Lachance said took several months to get the PPE needed to make sure her staff and guests could be kept safe. Were all trying to get the same PPE thats necessary in the medical and dental communities, she said.

Despite the long wait, Lachance says she is confident in her decision to choose safety over dollars.

Were in a college town. I really wanted to see how things played out for a couple of weeks, because all of us businesses share clientele, Lachance said.
