Tuesday Night Talk: "Bled For Boston" with Chris Padgett

  • Tewksbury Public Library 300 Chandler St. Tewksbury, MA 01876 (map)

The public is invited to an illustrated presentation on “Bled For Boston,” a photography project documenting the people who received tattoos after the Boston Marathon bombing.  Founder Chris Padgett, recently featured on WBZ News and in Boston Magazine, says, “Bostonians everywhere showed their support for the city after the bombings.  Many tattoo shops in Massachusetts stepped up and offered Boston-themed tattoos, donating their profits to The One Fund Boston.  I wanted to capture the people that dedicated permanent space on their bodies as memorials to their city, first responders and the people who lost their lives at the Marathon.”  Get the first look at this fascinating year-long project, which officially launches this April with an exhibition at the Boston Center for Adult Education and the publication of a book.  Learn more about the project at
