Curb some Christmas consumerism.
Italian veggie restaurant Sonflour is putting on an epic year-end bash, complete with a pop-up tattoo parlour, on December 17th.
Titled Athchré (which means ‘second covering of earth’ in Irish), the immersive experience is based on consumerism’s impact on the natural environment. It will take place from 2pm to 6pm at the Castle Street venue.
Everything, naturally, will be nature-influenced.
Original flash tattoos, inspired by Irish, Italian, and Palestinian fruit, will be available courtesy of the talented tattooist Donna Cooney.
There will also be a dystopian world featuring carnivorous plants, expertly created by visual artists Billy Lingwood and Niamh McGuinness.
Musicians Pedro Ahnuc and 1000 Beasts will be taking over in the kitchen, delivering beats that will keep the party alive and there will also be organic and natural wines to elevate the experience.

“We were thinking of celebrating Christmas in a different way this year and one of our favourite artists in town, Billy, came to our aid,” the guys at Sonflour said on Instagram.
“Thinking about this specific time of the year, Billy and the visual artist Niamh will create in our restaurant a dystopian world with carnivorous plants as a metaphor for the perils of consumerism at the expense of the natural environment.”
Entrance is on a pay-what-you-can basis, and all profits from art sales will go to support alQaws, a grassroots queer-feminist organisation in Palestine.
