On April 15th, Missy/Ink, London's women-centric tattoo/pin-up magazine, hosted a party and fundraiser for Women's Community House at the Nite Owl to celebrate their one year anniversary. The magazine was started by talented pinup photographer, Dana Brushette and model/designer Bella Rouge, who wanted to provide a positive forum for women through the art of pin-up and tattoo culture. I hoped there would be some stylish folks to photograph, and I was not disappointed.

This tantalizing trio of saucy dames prove that black is definitely not boring. From left to right: Leah Bradley, stylish/event coordinator for Missy/Ink, Dr. Carlen Costa, one of Canada's leading Sexologists and relationship experts,(and a guest speakers that evening), and Jagoda Hall, owner of Salon Cyan.
The majority of the guests were women, but there were a few guys enjoying the party (and the eye candy), including one gentleman sporting these fabulous two-tone shoes

Hamilton musician and burlesque performer Ginger St. James country/blues, treated the audience to a set of kickass country/blues, accompanying herself on her guitar. Her sassy gun print dress and cool cowboy boots were the perfect match for her music.
I did not try the Missy/Ink Cocktail, but I did indulge in a deep-fried mars bar (my first) and it was as deliciously decadent as I had hoped it would be. With gorgeous dames sporting great style and cool ink, live music, some smart sex talk by Dr. Carlen Costa, and funds raised going to Women's Community House, it was a fun evening for a good cause.
