Bled for Boston

Chris Padgett wanted to give back to the city after the Boston Marathon bombings in a unique way. His project, 'Bled for Boston', showcases tattoos from individuals who love this city and emphasize it in ink. The exhibit is featured at the Boston Center for Adult Education in Back Bay

"Chris says, 'Bostonians everywhere showed their support for the city after the bombings. Many tattoo shops in Massachusetts stepped up and offered Boston-themed tattoos, donating their profits to The One Fund Boston. I wanted to capture the people that dedicated permanent space on their bodies as memorials to their city, first responders and the people who lost their lives at the Marathon.'"

The exhibit will be on display through the end of April. Please click here for more general information and visiting hours for the 'Bled for Boston' Exhibit at the BCAE.
