VAR Magazine Launch Event
Sunday, April 15, 2012 at 7:00 PM - Monday, April 16, 2012 at 12:00 AM (PDT)
New York, NY
On Sunday, April 15th 7PM-12AM, VAR Magazine will launch its first printed edition of their publication at Wooster Street Social Club, home of TLCs reality television show NY Ink. It was only natural for VAR to partner with Wooster Street Social Club for this epic event that will introduce a new wave in tattoo culture, art, music, and lifestyle based on their shared love for the “art of tattoo”. The purpose of the event is to launch VAR’s inspired vision of tattoo and body art into mainstream culture. VAR recognizes the accessibility preferences of its readers and that with digital media and blogging comes on-demand video and audio interviews, image, and text at the tap of a finger or the click of a mouse. VARs first issue will focus on the desire for accessibility while returning to the tradition of fine art’s elite status as tactile object by publishing a traditional print edition.
FUSE TV’s very own Juliya Chernetsky will be the host for the evening to greet guests on the red carpet and direct them to photographers in front of the step and repeat. Entertainment for the evening will be provided through a mix of LIVE music performances and DJ sets by legendary Steve Lewis. The event will provide drinks by Vision Vodka, Moonshine Whiskey, Alacran Tequila, Mercy, and passed hors d'oeuvres by Stand4 Restaurant that will cater to approximately 300 influential guests from New York City’s creative, artistic, and trendsetting communities. Guests will include photographers from major publications, media writers from lifestyle blogs, television talent, athletes, models, artists, and musicians that VAR has worked with in the past.

When & Where
VAR Magazine & FUSE TV's Juliya Chernetsky
VAR is a new and exciting art culture magazine. VAR stands for 'Variant,' but not just a Variant from the norm. The Variant in VAR magazine is a channel through which fine art, tattoo, photography, fashion, and lifestyle can be applied with class. VAR provides the featured writers, photographers, models, and artists a space within its pages to convey their beauty, originality, sentimentality, expression, and artistic skill.
The face of VAR is currently nybodyart.com, a website promoting VAR's vision of body art as Fine Art; a form of artistic expression that should be embraced, appreciated, and examined as more than simply an alteration of the skin. The vision of nybodyart.com and VAR magazine is to portray tattoos and body art in the same light as a painting in any museum or a much-anticipated exhibition in any respected artistic venue.
