It’s an interesting completion of a circle as we return to one of this art movement’s roots – tattoo art. The movement has evolved so much to include so many different artists, that the term “low brow” is controversial now, but we can agree that the beginnings, by definition, included artists not respected by mainstream collectors and institutions, one […]
