Book Release and Signing for Devon Blood's Keep Laughing

When: Fri., Aug. 19, 8 p.m. 2011

When tattoo artist Devon Blood suffered a gunshot to the head in 2006, it threatened to end his life and his hard-earned career. The tenacious artist, who endured months of hospital stays, surgeries, and physical rehabilitation, had to relearn his trade using his left hand. Now he's returned to his job at Sacred Tattoo (707 Broadway, Oakland), and he's penned a book about his experiences. The shop celebrates on Friday, Aug. 19, with a release party and signing of Blood's new autobiography, Keep Laughing, which is filled with photographs and illustrations by the artist and friends. 8 p.m., free. 510-251-8287 or
