What’s Up Peekskill? Tattoos and bare butts!

Feeling naked when you’re nekid? Perhaps a tattoo can give you some peace of mind on Nude day. You’ll probably get naked to get that tattoo on your butt anyway! And Peekskill’s own Speakeasy Tattoo is just the place to do it!

Thursday, July 14 – Happy Nude Day!

And perhaps appropriately, it’s also Pandemonium Day — It can get crazy with all those nekid people running around.

And to our French friends, who helped us during our own revolution, sorry about the Freedom Fries thing… Salut! Happy Bastille Day!
