Over the past 13 years, Tempe, AZ’s Club Tattoo body art studios have become world renowned for their artists, piercings and tremendous contribution to tattoo lifestyle and culture.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 11.

Club Tattoo’s highly anticipated annual high-octane anniversary celebration is complete with live music performances integrated into a unique club event like no other. Club Tattoo guests will be entertained by performances from Rabbit in the Moon and Julien-K featuring special guest Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, plus DJ sets by Jeremy Dawson of Shiny Toy Guns, A Virgin Tear and JKDJS.

Club Tattoo co-founder Sean Dowdell states, “These parties have become legendary over the years and this year will be no exception!”

“Being able to celebrate our 13th year with Club Tattoo is amazing,” adds Chester Bennington, Club Tattoo co-founder and special anniversary guest performer. “These parties have always been special to us and we’ve always enjoyed being able to have great artists and fans come out to help us celebrate. This year’s line up is amazing, and they’re going to bring it harder than ever before!”

Sean Dowdell founded Club Tattoo in 1995 with friend Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, who aided in the original concept and design behind the popular chain. The friendship dates back to when the duo played in the Phoenix based band Grey Daze, which was a pre-cursor to Chester's current position with Linkin Park. Club Tattoo has expanded into four locations in Arizona, and has become world renowned for its artistry and professionalism of talented tattoo artists, body piercers, and support staff. It boasts the largest collection of body jewelry in the Southwest United States and has a full clothing store dedicated to the "tattooed soul.”

Club Tattoo has been voted Best Tattoo and Body Piercing studio for four years (1999-2003) by the Arizona Republic & Gazette, The Rep and Get Out Magazine. Their artists have won over 80 international awards and have been featured in 18 worldwide-distributed publications. Most recently, Club Tattoo has expanded its apparel interests and created a men’s premium clothing line called Ve’cel, which is one of the fastest growing men’s lines. Additionally, Club Tattoo teamed up with Etnies in 2007 to release custom tattoo design shoes created by Club Tattoo artists. 2009 will see the Club Tattoo chain expand even further, with a Club Tattoo studio on the Las Vegas strip in the newly created Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Rabbit in the Moon have continued to be one of the most exciting live performers in the electronic music scene for over a decade. Hailed by many as the “Grateful Dead” or “Pink Floyd” of the electronic scene, the band’s music is matched only by their legendary over-the-top stage performance and production which has become a must see.

Julien-K is the brainchild of founding Orgy (“Blue Monday,” “Stiches”) members Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck. Fusing the elements of dark electronic club music with styles of modern rock & pop, Julien-K are at the forefront of the electronic music scene. They recently toured with Linkin Park on the 2007 Projekt Revolution Tour and Evanescence, winning over audiences around the country.

Jeremy Dawson, founding member of Shiny Toy Guns (“Le Disko”) has been steadily establishing himself as one of the countries premier DJ’s. When not performing with STG, Jeremy is a highly sought after DJ spinning at many of the premier nightclubs in America.
