Tattoo: The Art of Impermanence

Front Porch Magazine
January 2012 (pg. 27)

An artist’s work traditionally reflects their era with an attention to thematic details that allows future generations to connect with their pieces. Artists using conventional materials, such as paper and canvass, have the benefit of knowing their work will last if maintained under the right conditions. Yet tattoo artists embrace life’s organic transience, understanding that living art is as fragile as the canvass upon which it is displayed.
