Thanks to my good friends Ross and Julia at Star Crossed Tattoo, I will be heading along for the opening of Skin:Inks. The exhibition will be running at Racks in Lan Kwai Fong for a month or so and will be featuring 28 life size tattoo canvas photo portraits. If you get a tattooed limb out on display you will be rewarded with a free shooter and a photo on the ‘wall of ink’! The whole shebang will be wrapped up with a closing party at CLIQ on July 10th. Head along and check out the work by HK’s finest tattoo artists!

Venue: RACKS, 7F, M88, 2-8 Wellington St, Central, HK

Ever finished up a kick ass design on your Mac, sent it to your PC running client and been told it looked “too dark” on their monitor? Gamma Toggle is a nifty little program that allows you to toggle between various gamma settings to see how your designs look on other operating systems. Though it is no replacement for actually loading your design on a bunch of different computers, it is really handy for getting a real-time idea of how it looks on a standard setting MAC or PC screen from your MAC or PC.
It’s tiny, it’s handy, it’s free so there is no reason why your shouldn’t go get it!
Picked this tip up from the excellent Boagworld podcast.
