How much do you like the doodles of David Shrigley? Enough to get his art tattooed on your body? If so, tonight's launch party for his latest book of quirky sketches titled What the Hell Are You Doing?: The Essential David Shrigley, features a drawing you can enter to win a Shrigley tattoo that will be scrawled on by the artist himself with a Sharpie and then inked indelibly by the tattoo shop East River Tattoo (courtesy of the Anton Kern Gallery). Shrigley, who has done the cover art on rock albums for Deerhoof and other bands, will also do a bunch of Sharpie tattoos for anyone who wants one. Free doughnuts and lemonade, too!
