Tattoos and Transitions

Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016

01:00 PM – 04:00 PM


Explore the symbolic power of tattoos, particularly in times of great transition. This workshop will focus on the transitional significance of body art, how the tattoo itself brings meaning to an individual’s life, and also the power of the image in ink to bring new and unexpected challenges and opportunity when an individual may least expect it.
