Now that everyone and their grandmama has a tattoo it’s pretty safe to say that the negative connotation with skin art is now long gone. Now couple that open armed embrance from mainstream media and the same from hipster/alt culturalist (is that a word?!) and “getting inked” has been raised to fine art. Now that tattoo shops are the new “art gallery” (and in a lot of ways actual galleries) then it would make sense that the artist who do the work be viewed as todays Picassos. Not all are fame seeking and wish to live there lives in the public eye (see Kat Von D “LA Ink”) so would much rather have the word of mouth of their skills be the reason they are talked about. The folks over at Adorned are one shop of many artist looking to have their art be famous. check the video.
