Southbound Studios, 1136 E. Broadway, is the kind of tattoo shop where the art on the walls is just as intriguing as the art on the legs, arms and backs of its customers. 

The collective is hosting a resident artist opening on Saturday, featuring the works of owner Tracy Ledbetter, Janessa Bates, Gail Reilly, Eddie Angulo and velvet painter Diane Bombshelter.

The fun runs from 7 to 9 p.m.
