Learn about the work of American Traditional Tattoo Artist Erik Sacony as the North Penn Arts Alliance Speaker Series kicks off on Wednesday, January 8 at 7 p.m. at the Trego Arts Center at St. Luke’s Church, 125 N. Main Street in North Wales. Park in the lot behind the building on Second Street.
A lifelong artist, Erik has been into art of all kinds since a young age. His interest in tattooing came while in high school, as he began drawing tattoo designs for friends. It was at that time he began studying the icons— Bert Grimm, Cap Coleman, Sailor Jerry, Lyle Tuttle, and Philadelphia Eddie.
While attending West Chester University, he studied art history while majoring in graphic design. It was then he began incorporating the art or tattooing into his portfolio.
Since graduating WCU, he not only continued his passion for the arts, but is also a successful Real Estate investor in Phila. He has had multiple art showcases and completed his tattoo apprenticeship and has since been bringing his love for American Traditional Tattooing to life with each tattoo.
Note that, while traditionally, the series is held on the first Wednesday of the month, this will be January 8 to avoid the New Year’s holiday.
