Barton F Graf tapped 24 local L.A. artists to create a really big mural on the corner of Sunset and Hyperion for DIageo's whisky brand Bulleit. Why? Well, this the first in a series called Frontier Works, "a set of creative projects to support and celebrate creative people living and working on the modern cultural frontier." Each of the tattoo artists got a panel to do what they wanted with the mural, provided of course it depicted the Bulleit label. No doubt the process was documented and will be shared on Bulleit's social channels, too. In case you're interested in watching someone make a billboard.
Do tattoo shops even qualify as being on the frontier any more? Maybe in some parts of the country they do, but In L.A. they're as ubiquitous as food trucks and donut shops. I'm actually surprised you can't get a tattoo from a food truck at this point
