PBS Off Book: Tattoos – Pop Portraits, Japanese Traditional, and American Eclectic
Tattoos continue to remain a strictly ‘analog’ means of self-expression in an increasingly digital world. The PBS Off Book series is dedicated to exploring concepts like these, where definitions of art are continuing to be redefined in a modern, new-media society. In this new episode, Off Book delves into the permanent, self-expressive world of both modern and traditional tattoos. To do this, they sit down with three artists from dramatically different backgrounds to learn about the styles and motivations behind the decidedly permanent and analog art they are creating. Some of the featured personalities include Vinny Romanelli of Red Rocket Tattoos, Kiku of Invisible NYC, and Stephanie Tamez of Saved Tattoo.
