This weekend may be your only chance to get a tattoo from notorious graffiti bomber, MQ. The only catch is that you have to be in Tokyo. Starting Saturday for 4 days, the man behind the iconic two-letter throwup will be slanging ink at Have a Good Time Gallery. Don’t sleep! September 15-18, 2-8 p.m.

It’s on the move! A rare recent capture of the massive, rust-ridden MQ barge in San Francisco being moved by a tugboat to a new destination. It appears time and weather has had its way, eating away at the paint, making the letters less distinct.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
As last year proved to be a good formula for art success, San Francisco will once again host 3 coinciding art fairs this weekend: artMRKT, ArtPadSF, and the SF Fine Art Fair. We are getting ourselves prepared for a few nights out, a few afternoons out of office, perhaps even a picture or a 100 of all the activity going on throughout the city. A rundown after the jump . . .

What an awkward picture. In the middle of doing these massive throwups this idea actually came up, “Hey girl, you should climb up that ladder with a spray can, pull your pants down, hold the can behind your back, and we will take pictures.” Don’t worry; it’s a good look.
