For the opening, AKA London presents a very special group show of the represented tattoo artists, curated by Jon John with unique work commisioned especially for this occasion. The event will take place on January 18th, 7-10 pm.

This is an invitation only event, please RSVP here or at The AKA team would be delighted to share a drink with you on ground floor of the house. Forever: The New Tattoo, published by Gestalten, features work by a number of the AKA crew, including the curator of the exhibition, Jon John.
