I just received the following press release and I’m passing it along to you fair readers. Should you be in New York City, you may want to check this out. Please feel free to write in with any photos and your impressions of the event if you do check it out.
Ina Saltz on Tattoos, Flash Art, Intellectual Property Rights, and Insights Into the Art of Tattoos
Join author and photographer INA SALTZ for a behind-the-scenes look into the ever-expanding world of typographic or intellectual tattoos (including a sneak peek at images Ina is collecting for BODY TYPE 3!). Amazing photographs of those who have chosen to represent their deepest feelings with the indelible permanence of ink embedded under their skin will be shown, and the powerful stories behind the tattoos will be told. Ina has been documenting typographic tattoos since 2003, when she first spotted a tattoo of the word happy in lowercase, 120-point Helvetica on a graphic designer while traveling on a cross-town bus in New York City.
