Although the City of Santa Clarita’s next Art Walk will explore the “art of the tattoo”, you will not be hearing the buzzing sound of electric tattoo needles. That’s because this event celebrates tattoo-style art that’s moved from the flesh to canvas.

The “art of the tattoo” art walk takes place Thursday, June 7, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm on Main Street in Old Town Newhall. A one-night art show titled “Off the Skin,” will feature the work of local, talented tattoo artists that practice their craft on canvas, board, paper, and other surfaces.
The art themed evening will include free art demonstrations by local artists, a fashion show, photo shoots, gourmet food trucks, and live music by the band Agent Orange.
Agent Orange describes themselves as the original Southern California Punk/Surf Power Trio:
“Agent Orange has been around since forever. Never bought in, never sold out. Blazed a musical trail so wide that imitators had no trouble driving right up the middle of it in an armored truck full of major label ca$h. Still flying under the radar after all these years, with a loyal following that's always one step ahead. Hooked up all over the world, but always looking for someplace else to go. 100% guaranteed to make your ears ring. Expose yourself to Agent Orange's Fullblown-Supercharged-Punk-Surf-Grind, and you'll never be the same. C'mon down front, and have some fun!”
