Ink and a Smile
Beautiful, comical, and sometimes even frightening, Tattoos fascinate us. They are symbols of stories, special times, people and places, goals and dreams.
Performers captivate us. As they weave tales from beneath a boa, behind a fan, or underneath a dress, we learn, laugh, and love alongside them.
But what of a performer’s chosen symbols, the stories you’ve seen many times but never truly understood? What of their tattoos? Ink and a Smile is your chance to watch as our ladies use their chosen art to explain their body art – Roxie’s rose window, Eva’s scorpion, Ruby’s lambs. Experience a night of tease that gives you a glimpse at more than just skin and a look at what both is, and is not, skin deep.
With performances by some of Austin’s biggest burlesque stars, including Belliona Fatin, FiFi Switchblade, Doubledown Dixie, Eva Strangelove, Bunny Bang Bang, Bethany Summerisizzle, Ginger Snaps, Ruby Lamb, Black Mariah, Miss Malicious, Sassy Delure, Roxie Moxie, and Zaftigg Von BonBon.Hosted by Nicole Lucas.
