It’s official: This is my favorite season. We briefly touched on my fondness for Fall in posts past, but this time it’s for real. So much amazing stuff has been packed into the last month, from a new job to a sleeve of tattoos (at ease, concerned friends, the tats are temporary Tattlys) that I had to exhale and unload it here, purely for your viewing pleasure. Hence, the title of this post, which comes from one of Dan Brown’s designs for the infinitely great tat line.
For starters, take a look at Tattly’s new temporary tattoo parlor. I visited a week ago, and it’s the best thing on Brooklyn’s Bergen Street in my humble opinion.
It’s got everything from a snazzy gilded sign out front to a legitimate-looking you’re getting tatted parlor chair to (most importantly) rows and rows of tattoo selections. Whether you’re feeling cartoon dinosaurs, blooming bouquets, art supplies, or friendly words of advice, you can make an appointment for a full sleeve or slap on a single tat and be on your way.
Big thanks to Carly for letting me tag along—my thirst for temporary tats has been satiated for a few weeks.
This past weekend, Car and I popped into the always charming Elephant & Castle for brunch on Saturday, followed by hours and hours of gallery hopping through Chelsea.
From Adam McEwen above to Joseph Kosuth below, add this afternoon’s art intake to “Reasons I Love NYC.” Though I look more P.O.’d below than I do enchanted, I assure you I was just digesting this magical room full of fluorescent words at the Sean Kelly Gallery in Midtown.
Plus, let’s take a moment to acknowledge that I’ve discovered how to decorate all my living rooms forevermore, courtesy of the Hauser & Wirth gallery entryway. It’s a Duct tape kind-of aesthetic, from here on out.
