Since we know traveling to Philadelphia and buying a million new books (and don’t even get us started on actually registering for a conference!) is costly, instead of taking up our usual collection, we encourage you to donate a few spare bucks or a hand to your local mutual aid groups when you’re able.

TIRE FIRE Reminder: Tattooed Mom is 21+ and proof of vaccination is required at the door. We appreciate your commitment to keeping yourself and others safe!

Accessibility Note: reading is upstairs and non-bumper car seating is limited, and tends to be first-come, first-serve. If you need assistance or accommodations, please let us know.
