What's better than immortalizing memories with a tattoo, right? That's exactly what local tattoo artist Karolina Olivia is offering you. Get the TENWEST logo inked on your skin to make your love for TENWEST official and everlasting. We might even cook up a special discount for the bold souls who go through with it, or you can choose a cute little nopal cactus tattoo to think of us whenever you catch a glimpse in the mirror. We're super excited to offer this option on Creativity Conference Day at the Tucson Convention Center on Wed, Nov 8th. It's first-come, first-served, and Karolina will gladly take cash or e-payment. Get ready to ink up and show your TENWEST pride!
