Amanda Wachob Talks Tattoos on NPR
The wonderful Amanda Wachob is no stranger to this blog as she continues to expand tattooing's vocabulary, beyond representational art, with her experimental work. Largely known for her brushstroke effects, Amanda takes a painterly approach to the art form but still keeps the strength of a traditional tattoo.
Amanda talks about this approach on Boston's NPR news station, Here & Now, with a segment entitled "Turning Tattoos Into Fine Art." Along with photographer Paul Nathan, who is the author of "Generation Ink," she also answers some of the standard questions like, Does it hurt? or What will happen if you no longer like it? And she does so in a way that best represents our community. You can stream the show or download it to your media player for offline listening.
A few weeks ago, Amanda was also featured on Huffington Post with a short profile and slideshow of her tattoo and fine art.
Amanda works out of a private studio in Brooklyn. Find out more about her on AmandaWachob.com.
