Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Art show thank you

From all of us at 12 oz. Studios, we’d like to send a HUGE thank you out to all who attended our 12th year anniversary art show, “12 Years of 12 oz Studios”. We hope you had just as much fun hanging out and seeing brilliant works of art as we did creating them. It was great to take a trip down memory lane and see pieces from former 12 oz.’ers that we were fortunate enough to work with and see all of the old banners and signs Alex had created back when the shop first opened.
It goes without saying, but our amazing group of clients is the reason for our continued success as well as inspiration to create incredible tattoos and beautiful pieces of art. For those who were unable to attend you are in luck! All of the artwork displayed at the opening reception will remain up at our Brooklawn shop so feel free to stop by, we’d love to see you! Thanks again everyone, and we can’t wait to put on another show!

We are extremely proud to announce that our founder Alex Feliciano will be a part of CITICIEN: 100 Puerto Rican Artists, 100 Years of the Jones-Shafroth Act art exhibition this weekend in New York City.  Signed in 1917 by President Wilson, The Jones-Shafroth Act granted U.S. citizenship to anyone born in Puerto Rico on or after April 25, 1898, becoming a complex and significant turning point for the people of Puerto Rico.  Following strict visual guidelines of size and a black-and-white only palette, the exhibit’s theme is one of visual consistency and commitment, acting as a metaphor of the unified voice and solidarity of Puerto Ricans during this critical political time.

The exhibit was created by Defend Puerto Rico, a multimedia project designed to document and celebrate Puerto Rican creativity, resilience, and resistance.  Defend PR seeks to deepen connections between Puerto Ricans on the island and throughout the diaspora, in the hopes of nurturing greater solidarity, collaboration, and kinship.

The CITICIEN opening reception is today, Thursday March 2nd, from 6pm to 10pm at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center in New York City.  If you are in the NYC area take some time to check out amazing work from 100 different artists.  The CITICIEN exhibit runs from March 2nd to March 5th.

12 years at 12 oz. Studios!

12-12-collage

Today, January 13, 2017, we celebrate our twelfth anniversary.  When we opened our doors in 2005 with just two artists and a piercer, we could not have imagined our little shop would grow into the force we are today.  We were just a few artists that wanted a space to feed our creativity.  Since then, we’ve flourished.  12 oz. Studios now has two locations, ten artists, and the only Association of Professional Piercers member in southern New Jersey.

In light of this momentous occasion, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone, both past and present, that helped us along the way.  Thank you to our dedicated crew of tattoo artists and piercers that have encouraged and inspired us.  Thank you to our receptionists for keeping our shops running like well-oiled machines.  Thank you to our manager for always dotting the i’s, crossing the t’s, and keeping everything glued together.

And to you, our loyal customers, we give you our sincerest thank you for your business, your ideas, and your friendship.  You continue to give us the greatest gift – the opportunity to create.
