Tempe is hosting a “Who’s Your Neighbor?” event on Nov. 17 that will feature members of the tattooed and pierced community. Tattoo and piercing artists will discuss and answer questions such as why people get tattoos or piercings, how that affects their lives or work prospects, what drives the tattoo industry and the changing demographics of tattooed people in Tempe. The speakers are Mark Walters, Chris Perrish and Jane Adler from Living Canvas Tattoo.
The event is sponsored through the city’s diversity office and is part of a series of presentations to create a greater understanding of other cultures, traditions and lifestyles. It is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. Nov 17 at the Tempe City Council Chambers, 31 E. Fifth St. Parking is available at the garage east of City Hall. For more information, call (480) 350-8979.
