Earnest Sewn, Saved Tattoo & Billykirk

We love doing collaborations and this was a really fun one. Billykirk, Earnest Sewn and Scott Campbell of Saved Tattoo/Mama Tried Studios teamed up to create these one of a kind "Mother" inspired wallets and card cases.
Scott designed the art work then laser engraved it onto each blank. There will only be 15 of each available at the upcoming Earnest Sewn Mother's Day event. Should be a great time. Stop by if you can.

"For four years, famed tattoo artist Scott Campbell has been marking up high-profile clients in his Williamsburg shop Saved Tattoo. And on May 11th (that’s Mothers Day… write it down) he will be taking part in the Earnest Sewn Installation Series. Since 2004, jeans brand Earnest Sewn has tried to compliment their rustic style with classic Americana culture-gone-modern installation pieces. Showcasing artists, products, and ideas, it seems too perfect that Campbell’s bringing his iconic style to the Earnest Sewn Co.’s Meatpacking District flagship shop. As a “specialist in skulls, flames, naked ladies, portraits of deceased loved ones,” and all things iconic, Campbell will be designing a series of traditional “mom” tattoos for the day at $100 flat –- a nice discount from his regular $1,000/hour rate. Campbell’s shop opens at 9 a.m., and I’m seriously considering skipping the annual Mothers Day breakfast in bed, rolling up my sleeves and saying “I love you Mom,” like a mariner would. And while I’m there, maybe I’ll pick her up a limited edition Earnest Sewn T-shirt or wallet available for the day… just in case the tattoo doesn’t go over so well."
