1302

Air Max Day is a holiday created by Nike in 2014 as a way to commemorate the day that the Nike Air Max 1 was introduced to the world. That day was March 26th, 1987. For this years third annual Air Max day Nike really went all out. They organized “Air Max Con” in New York, Tokyo, and Hong Kong and it is a massive space where you can walk through a series of rooms and learn about the history of the iconic shoe. One of these rooms is the Air Max Vault which displays the top 100 air maxes and the audience gets to vote for their favorite model. The sneaker with the most votes will be re-released next Air Max Day. Below is an image of the Air max Vault.064A0788-Edit-2.0

Cubist tattoos are very interesting and enjoyable to look at. A lot of them feature vibrant colors with lots of bold outlines which make for a unique and creative tattoo. I find it especially interesting given my affinity for tattoos and the fact that I am currently working a cubism piece.
