Those of you who follow my blog with any regularity know that I consider the contemporary tattoo as “the people’s art.” It is a form of personal expression that is available to, and for the masses, and at no other time in history have we seen the proliforation of so many individuals, from so many diverse walks of life, investing in the creativity of personal self-expression. And at no ther time in history has this ancient art form been practiced by so many talented artists. At every music festival I work at, I’m surrounded by art on the move, and at an event like the Mobtown Greaseball the stars align to bring together hundreds, if not thousands of moving canvases together in one place. What follows is a very brief look at some of the colorful art I witnessed yesterday in Dundalk. If you, or someone you know, or an artist’s work you recognize appears here, please feel free to get in touch so I might credit your work or acknowledge you as a patron of the arts. Better yet, maybe you need a studio sitting to fully document your contribution to the humanities.
Loved this young woman’s canvas & overall sense of style- Especially liked the tribute to her Grandmother
