Tattoo witnessing at the Arts Center

Posted By on Mon, Jun 18, 2012 at 1:38 PM

Photographs of muralists whose work will go with an exhibit of photographs — got that? Arkansas Times photographer Brian Chilson visited the Arkansas Arts Center on Sunday to take shots of Arkansas tattoo artists commissioned to paint murals to go with the exhibit, "Tattoo Witness: Photographs by Mark Perrott," which opens Friday. Tattoo artists Robert Berry, Richard Moore, Caleb Pritchett, Chris Thomas, Brooke and Ryan Cook, Nancy Miller and Scott Diffee have been working on the murals a couple of weeks to accompany the exhibition of 25 large-scale photographs illustrating the body art by Pittsburgh shooter Perrott. More on the show in a later post; here's some of Chilson's shots of the Arkansas tat artists at work.
