For thousands of years, tattoos and the artists that create them have utilized their human canvases to tell tales of survival and the hunt, love lost, life at sea and the weary road traveler but in recent years the art form, and the massive growth of artists behind it, have become accepted as part of the cultural mainstream. What was once frowned upon as something relegated to sailors, blue collar workers and the downtrodden has now become a widely sought after form of art.
Curated by the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market, BOLD WILL HOLD will capture the art of tattoo artists as well as more traditional artists who have been inspired by tattoo culture and the styles of art that have emerged from it.
