DC's T-Funk x Tati Compton Shoe Release Photos
DC just released a collaboration for T-Funk's pro shoe wih LA tattoo artist Tati Compton. To celebrate the release, DC hosted Tati’s first ever art show this past weekend at These Days in downtown Los Angeles. The skate community was there to devoure the beer supply while local celebs, including Andy Dick, lurked. The rest of the crowd took advantage of free hand-poked tattoos by the artist of honor herself Tati. When you're done seeing who was bold and brave enough to get down for life, go cop the shoe before they’re all gone! —Jimmy Astleford
