COSTA MESA, Calif. – Joanna Angel and her company, BurningAngel, will be hosting a booth at a three-day music and ink festival to be held at the Orange County Fair and Exposition Center, February 22 through 24.
The event, the MusInk Tattoo and Music Festival, is presented by celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D and will feature a variety of music acts and 200 needle-and-ink artists from all over the world.
The BurningAngel booth will host Angel, a number of her BurningAngel.com girls and porn starlet Roxy DeVille, all of whom will be signing autographs and posing for pictures. The booth will also offer tattooing by Brandon of Traditional Ink.
"I'm so honored that my company is the only adult company that will be represented at the festival," said Joanna. "And it was pretty awesome to see my logo in the ad's for the event, right up there next to Rolling Rock and KROQ. It gave me all sorts of warm fuzzies inside."
Kat Von D, who achieved a degree of celebrity from the TLC shows "Miami Ink" and her own "L.A. Ink," has recently been the subject of controversy over an anti-Semitic autographed photo she allegedly sent to her former "Miami Ink" employer Ari James where the word "Jewbag" was used. Von D has "vehemently" denied authoring the text in the photo and TLC has taken no disciplinary action citing insufficient evidence.
The Orange County Fair and Exposition Center is located at 88 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa, Calif. 92626. Doors open at 2pm on Friday, February 22. For more information and the festival and the bands scheduled to perform, go to www.Musink.org.
