Windsor is Forever is a new community-driven art and tattoo project that will give residents of Windsor an opportunity to make a permanent mark, on themselves.

Conceived by Portland-based artist, Jason Sturgill, residents are welcome to meet Sturgill in person between now and March 3rd to talk about their favourite places, landmarks, and people in the city, offer Sturgill a guided tour of the city.

You can also catch up with him at an open sketch night on March 4th where the tattoo flash design will begin.  Sturgill will be co-hosting the Arts Council Windsor And Region’s Sketch Night at CIVIC SPACE with local artist Dave Kant, where the theme of the night will be to create the flash sheet of tattoo designs that are all connected to Windsor starting at 7pm.

This work will lead to the end goal of creating a series of Windsor-based tattoo flash ready to be inked onto members of the community.

Then, on March 7th, Broken City Lab’s  CIVIC SPACE will be turned into a free tattoo shop for the day, hosted by local tattoo artist Dave Kant of Advanced Tattoo. Anyone eager to receive their Windsor tattoo will be asked to register in advance on BCL’s website with a story of why they believe Windsor is Forever.
