Off Book: Tattoos - Pop Portraits, Japanese Traditional, American Eclectic

It seems that no matter how far we advance into the digital age, our bodies remain a place where we want to express ourselves. In this episode, we talk to three tattoo artists of differing styles. Vinny Romanelli embraces pop culture, tattooing detailed portraits of entertainment idols, Kiku works with the traditional Japanese form, and Stephanie Tamez embodies an eclectic mix of influences, with the occasional use of nice typography. 

Featuring:

Vinny Romanelli, Red Rocket Tattoos
Kiku, Invisible NYC
Stephanie Tamez, Saved Tattoo
