Eastland and Bloomingdale’s hosted tattoo artists Steve Boltz and Bert Krak of Smith Street Tattoo Parlour for a leather engraving event last night at the 59th Street Bloomingdale’s in NYC. Steve and Bert were on hand to tattoo distinctive engravings in a variety of motifs to the Eastland 1955 Collection signature boots, loafers, and camp mocs available for sale at Bloomingdale’s, thereby customizing each pair of shoes sold during the event. The motifs included an anchor, eagle, swallow, USA badge, the Eastland logo, a diamond, and several monograms, tattooed in Steve and Bert’s unique style. Guests enjoyed music by DJ Franco V and refreshments by DonQ Rum and Maine based brewery Shipyard.
