Ahead of this weekend's PaleFest event set for October 13th, two legends in Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg and internationally revered tattooer Paul Booth have come together for special collaboration project spearheaded by curation authority, House of Masks.
Debuting at Palefest, where Weinberg himself will be on-hand to meet with fans, the drummer will be showcasing three of his stageworn masks from the most recent, The End, So Far cycle which were customized by Booth with his distinct tattoo style.
These one-of-a-kind mask variants of Jay’s mask will be on display during an in-person signing at Palefest. The speciality masks will be featured alongside Jay’s personal collection of stageworn SLIPKNOT masks and coveralls.
Fans, across the globe will be able to place their bids on the masks to add their personal collection. The auction will contribute the net proceeds to benefit MusicCares. Bids are now being accepted - HERE
Jay Weinberg enthused, “Paul’s artwork and tattooing speaks for itself, and his presence within our community of music, art, and creativity is that of a true icon. It’s an honor to collaborate together with The House of Masks to bring these tattooed masks to life.”
Booth added, “I had a lot of fun working on this project. Tattooing silicone has its challenges, but the end results really made it worth it! I look forward to seeing them in action.”
Horror culture specialist AJ Good of House of Masks also spoke about the significance of the project. “Working with a hero is one thing, but working with two heroes, on a single project that combines so many of your passions is a completely different level. I’m honored to have been a part of these two worlds colliding, Paul being my favorite tattooer for the entirety of my life, and Jay being my favorite drummer, seeing these two mediums clash just feels right, and the outcome speaks for itself!”
