If you love art look no farther than your own skin. Stemming from thousands of years ago, tattooing has always been an art form to showcase one’s declaration of love, their favorite things, and even religious beliefs. Today tattoo culture is bigger than ever and Bulleit Bourbon Tattoo Edition is here to share their love of the art and celebrate the talented tattoo artists with their newest limited release bourbon whiskey.
The Limited Edition bottle features four stunning tattoo designs on Bulleit’s iconic bottle. This is the first time the Bulleit bottle has been altered and this Tattoo Edtion bottle is sure to be a collector’s item. The bottles, created in partnership with America’s top tattoo artists, is inspired by the frontier spirit and the cities they live in. And get this, each bottle includes a hashtag containing a scannable QR code to access an interactive Augmented Reality experience bringing the art to life.
The participating trailblazing artists include Shawn Barber of Los Angeles, Jess Mascetti of New York, Thomas Hooper of Austin, Texas, and Jason Kundell of Portland, Oregon. One artist, Shawn Barber, was quick to share why he was so excited about this partnership and what drove him to create his design on the latest Frontier bottle.
“Putting my own unique spin on [the bottle] was a fun challenge because I didn’t want to mess with the style too much, but did want to share what LA means to me through my art. Bulleit gave me a lot of creative liberty and I’m proud of how it turned out.”
Shawn Barber first partnered with Bulleit back in 2017 when the Frontier Works Whiskey brought 24 Southern California tattoo artists together to create the world’s first tattoo billboard. The 35-foot leaver tattoo billboard was displayed in LA’s Silver Lake Neighborhood during the campaign, but now travels the country at various festivals.
The limited release bottles are available in each artist’s respective state and select bottles will be available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $24.99 at your local retailer or you can purchase online at ReserveBar.
