Freaks & Flash Presents 3 Tattoo Shorts


Music + whiskey + tattoos= me

Welcome back from the weekend everybody! I had my best friend's wedding this weekend which was entirely too much fun (if there is such a thing as too much fun). I even got my nails done for the occasion, which is scarier to me than getting a tattoo.

In some exciting tattoo news, the Intuit arts center has been hosting a fantastic exhibit- Freaks & Flash since September and it will be open through January 9th! Coming up December 3rd, the exhibit will host a series of three short films all about tattoo culture:

An evening of three short films related to tattoo history and culture: 'Stoney Knows How' (1981), by Alan Govenar and Bruce "Pacho" Lane, 29 minutes; 'Tattooed Lady of Riverview' by Tom Palazzolo, 14 minutes; and 'Fullsuit: A Portrait of Blu-Bak' (1991), by Kapra Fleming. There will be a Q&A session with filmmakers, Tom Palazzolo and Kapra Fleming. Kapra will also be sharing an additional short film on Blu-Bak and Amelia Klem Osterud will be on hand to sign copies of her new book 'The Tattooed Lady: A History' (available for purchase in the gift shop).
I've heard that Amelia's book is one of the best tattoo publications to ever be printed (and it's on my Amazon wish list in case anyone wants to know what to get me for Hanukkah). The show starts at 6pm and I'll be there for sure.
