Tattoos, More

Our two-week Tattoo theme starts right now, and to kick off our topic we asked four tatted-up individuals -- Ira, Colby, Gregory, and Shelia -- to illuminate how their tattoos link up to their style, their beliefs, their lives. The way in which each one articulates the art on their skin confirmed our suspicion that tattoos are so much more than pissing people off. As Gregory says of his 20 years of tattooing, "Each one represents something in my life that's happened or changed. They're about growing up, finding peace, not being an angry youth."
