First and foremost, Artistic Element would like to take a moment and say that the fires that occurred on 06/30/13 in Northern Arizona that killed 19 firefighters "hotshots" is an absolute tragedy. Roman Abrego and Rich Pineda, another realism artist, are here tattooing at the Northern Arizona Tattoo Fest In Prescott Arizona and it's a sad occasion. The convention is at a great location and in such a picturesque community but the locals are still dealing with the loss of their own. This wonderful town in Northern Arizona is rallying together to remember the lives lost and donate as much as they can to the families that lost their loved ones last Sunday. While these firefighters and their families should have been planning and celebrating the Fourth of July, they are all instead dealing with the impact of the Prescott wildfires. Hopefully the fact that the 1st annual Northern Tattoo Convention has kick started and the Oldest Rodeo is upon Prescott it can bring some smiles back to the locals.
