Tat­too and brew

Tat­too and Brew with Rolling Sea Tat­too­ery and Tata­m­agouche Brew­ing Com­pany

Truro Daily News - - FRONT PAGE - By Amanda doucette

Ali­cia Vocke loves vis­it­ing the Tata­m­agouche Brew­ing Com­pany and says she felt the venue is the per­fect lo­ca­tion for an event.

“It’s a great chance for me to get to­gether with clients fur­ther out of town, and it’s ex­po­sure for both me and them,” Vocke said. “Where can you go wrong with that?”

Vocke is the owner of Rolling Sea Tat­too­ery in Truro on Prince Street. She’s host­ing a tat­too event on Satur­day at the Brew­ery, where reg­is­tered guests can re­ceive a pre-se­lected beer-themed tat­too.

Al­though the event is at a brew­ery, Vocke doesn’t ad­vise drink­ing be­fore get­ting a tat­too. The event is hap­pen­ing from 11a.m. to 6 p.m., so af­ter get­ting inked, the brews are at your own dis­cre­tion, she said.

“Al­co­hol and tat­toos aren’t a good mix, but peo­ple are at­tend­ing just to watch the tat­too­ing process. And we do have a sep­a­rate room booked, I won’t be tat­too­ing right where they’re serv­ing al­co­hol.”

Vocke says sim­i­lar tat­too ex­pos she has at­tended in the past have served al­co­hol, but this is the first time she is host­ing this type of event.

“It’s re­ally not about the al­co­hol, I can’t stress that enough.”

Each client will re­ceive about an hour’s worth of ink, so right now there are seven ap­point­ments booked. They do have

a wait-list, if some­one doesn’t show up or isn’t in­ter­ested in the pre-se­lected tat­toos, it will be a first-come, first-served ba­sis.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited for it. I re­ally love the peo­ple at the Tata­m­agouche Brew­ery,” Vocke said “It’s a great en­vi­ron­ment and if all goes well, I hope this leads to other events in the fu­ture.”
