May the 4th at Main Line Ink
Recently I sat down with Jennifer Edge, tattoo artist & co-owner of Main Line Ink. Over the years Main Line has brought quite a few different themed events and shows to Chattanooga and this May 4 will be no different. This will be the third year of a Star Wars themed even being either May the 4th or Revenge of the 5th. Edge and I discussed some of their plans at the shop for this years event.
Ricky - Hey Jennifer, so you guys at Main Line have a pretty cool event coming up on May 4th. What's it about?
Jennifer - Our artists have drawn up custom Star Wars flash tattoos celebrating Star Wars! We also have a few local artists setting up outside selling their paintings, photography, and jewelry.
Ricky - That's really cool! You've done this for several years now right?
Jennifer - Yes we love having special event days! Inviting our community to come check out some art, grab a tattoo, and some treats from Mad Priest Coffee! We have Space Drinks this year!
Ricky - I think that's killer. It's really awesome to step outside the usual box and do things to support art and bring the community together. What's your favorite Star Wars film and character?
Jennifer - A new Hope is my favorite. I remember seeing it for the first time as a kid and believing in hero’s a little more after that. Too many good characters to pick just one. I have always loved Luke!!
Ricky - That’s awesome! Back where it all started. Saturday it’s calling for rain. Is this a rain or shine event? What about the artists outside?
Jennifer - It is rain or shine. The artists outside may have tents. You’ll be setup inside. I hope you guys will come out and have a great time!
