    Stepping away from their tattoo chairs and into the ring, 14 tattoo artists from across the country are putting on boxing gloves for the Tattooed Gloves Boxing, a fundraiser for True South Relief Foundation and the official after-party for the Star of Texas Tattoo Art Revival. Spike TV’s Ink Master judge and internationally-renowned tattoo artist Oliver Peck will serve as Special Ring Announcer and Master of Ceremonies accompanied by tattooed ring girls. The once-in-a-lifetime knock-out event, sanctioned by USA Amateur Boxing, is Saturday, January 17 starting at 9pm at the Midway Field House located at 2015 East Riverside Drive, Austin, TX 78741. Tickets are $25 each and available to purchase online at Signature Sailor Jerry cocktails will be available to purchase.

    To say that Keith Underwood, owner of Austin Tattoo Co. and producer of Tattooed Gloves Boxing, learned from “The School of Hard Knocks” is a literal understatement. Not only is Underwood one of the best traditional tattoo artists in the Americana style grandfathered by Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, but he is also an amateur-boxer-turned-boxing-manager. Although Underwood has had boxing experience, this will be boxing premieres for the rest of the tattoo artists.

    Fights include:

    Keith Underwood (Austin, TX) vs. Paul “Frog” Murphy (Minneapolis, MN)

    Dan Gilsdorf (Portland) vs. Brian McDermott (Corpus Christi, TX)

    Phil LaRocca (Austin, TX) vs. Ross Carlson (Portland, OR)

    Ryan Rogers (Eugene, OR) vs. Ricky Willgues (Pflugerville, TX)

    Damon Burns (Billings, MT) vs. Andy Felty (Dallas, TX)

    Miranda Larson (Austin, TX) vs. Samantha Vigliaturo (Oklahoma City, OK)

    Aubrey Trufant (San Angelo, TX) vs. Cory Rogers (Austin, TX)
