21+ Body Art

Jan. 19, 2018

Join us for our next 21+ event: Science After Dark Body Art.

The human body is your canvas as you explore the science behind the ways we decorate the human form.

Go for a temporary look with face and body painting, courtesy of artisans from Blushing Zebra. Get some ideas as you watch artist C.B. Perry create specialized body paint designs on models.

Learn different makeup techniques as artists from Beat By Nesh answer your questions and offer tutorials on daily and special event makeup.

For a longer-lasting look, experience intricate designs created by Mehndi (Henna Art) by Soma.

Create your own look with the chance to make and wear your own temporary tattoo with Artists Image Resources. Silkscreen and screen print tattoos using photosensitive emulsion, mobile light boxes, and water.

Artists from the Steel City Bleed Black & Gold Tattoo Expo will lead question and answer sessions about tattoos and the expo. Staff from Hot Rod Piercing will discuss the science and practice of body piercing.

For those looking to make a commitment, Torch and Dagger will be on site offering REAL tattoos for an additional cost. Guests will be able to choose from a selection of preset designs. (Pricing and registration details to be announced soon).

As an added bonus, Highmark SportsWorks® will be open for this event. Become a human yo-yo, climb the rock wall, or hurtle down a zip line without having to elbow 8-year-olds out of the way.

21+ Nights also feature music, cash bars, and snacks available for purchase.

Tickets to 21+ Night are $12 in advance and $17 at the door.

21+ Nights are presented by UPGRUV, Green Mountain Energy, Miller Lite, Dos Equis, and Full Pint.
