Musink Fades Away

Musink, a tattoo-themed traveling music festival scheduled to launch in January, is the latest event to fall victim to the struggling economy.

Tatooist and co-producer Kat Von D issued a statement expressing her regrets that the festival, which featured headliners Social Distortion and Motorhead along with renowned tattoo artists from around the world, didn’t work out.

“I’m sad that this year’s festival will not go on as planned, but I’d rather the fans not be disappointed, as there were key elements that did not come together as originally designed,” Von D said.
