Come to the Brooklawn, NJ Fall Festival!

We at 12 oz. Studios have always been proud to call Brooklawn, NJ our home.  Not to disparage the wonderful town of Deptford, but it’s where Alex Feliciano and Meghan Patrick decided to firmly plant their roots in 2005 when they opened the first 12 oz. Studios shop on New Broadway.  The citizens and public servants of Brooklawn have always been incredibly warm, welcoming, friendly and helpful.  And trust us, that’s not always easy when you own and operate a tattoo and piercing shop!

That is why we are excited to help promote the first Borough of Brooklawn Fall Festival!  The festival will be held at the Brooklawn Waterfront at Timber Blvd on Saturday, October 17, beginning at 1 pm until dusk.  It will be a full day of continuous live music, food, games, hayrides, entertainment, and concluded with a fireworks display (courtesy of Westville, NJ) at 7 pm over the river!  Please share and help us spread the word!  Hope to see you there!
