  • Promise You Art House 8830 Kennedy Avenue Highland, IN United States (map)

Highland, Indiana's FIRST and ONLY tattoo-themed art gallery exhibit is coming straight for your goosebumps courtesy of the Promise You Family and some of NWI's very best tattoo artists.

Tattoos are the new name tag and no longer the taboo once ascribed to "outsiders." Being out - - - is the new in, and we show that by wearing our hearts, minds, and souls on our skin.

Now, tattoos don't just grow on you overnight. That'd be weird. It takes a special kind of person-to-person bond to make the meaning behind your tattoo really stick - and we've gathered some of the best The Region's got who have become well-known around these towns for being able to take your body art dreams and make them into your day-to-day reality. Pretty cool.

But what exactly are they up to when they're not inking a fresh tattoo?

Well, we're going to show you.

The Promise You Art House brings to you Promise You TATTOO: the art of NWI's Top Tattoo Artists (emphasis on the artists part)

This new exhibit will introduce you to the original artwork made BY the tattoo artists - FOR the tattoo artists, in our effort to show everyone the deep appreciation we all have for their craft, for their life's work, and for the pure artistry that gets to come to life once they step out of the shadows of their parlor chairs and into each and every one of their very unique artist studios.

Joining their fellow artists in our Gallery C, also known as the Promise You Private Collection, will be the very first public appearance of Promise You Photography (PYP).

Promise You Photography is a growing group of Region photographers who find time to shine... camera flash on or off.

Each photographer has stepped from behind their cameras and the shade and safety of of the Internet showcase that is social media to show you what calls to them, the shots that they just HAVE TO CAPTURE, even if only a few eyes will ever get to see them, and to share their vision with the rest of us.

For as far as tattoo culture has come in this day and age, and with how saturated our timelines are with pictures of things on your devices, the Promise You Art House invites you to come on over and stay for a while - slow down a bit with us during these short summer months - and get to know what these artists see once they step out from behind their machines.

#PromiseYou feel something real. We'll see you at our house.
