Women and Tattoos

Posted on November 5, 2011


This week in our Deviant Behavior class, we will be screening the documentary I created, Covered, which documents some social issues in the lives of heavily tattooed women and female tattoo artists. After the screening, we will have a panel of veteran female tattooists, including: Sofia Estrella (aka Ms. Deborah), Pat Sinatra, Jen McTammaney, Emma Porcupine, Jen Carmean, and Missy Kramer. The screening will take place at 7pm in the Key Auditorium (Roger Bacon Hall 202). We are also reading two articles that discuss the industry of tattooing as well as the world of elite tattoo collectors. Please summarize the main points of these articles. Include links to additional material on the world of body art. Also include two discussion questions for our panelists.
