New Era Presents: Tattoo Age – Dan Santoro Part 1
Described in this video as a “pathological thinker,” tattoo artist Dan Santoro may not be a household name, but those in the industry laud him as a true original and supremely talented. Highlighted here by Vice in a collaboration with New Era, Dan is profiled as a bit of a free-wheeling jack-of-all-trades with a broad range of interests and a vivacious personality. The highlight of this short documentary piece, however, is without a doubt the series of tattoos featured throughout. From small to large, subtle to statement-making, Dan and his colleagues at Smith Street’s tattoos are truly examples of heightened works of the craft.
