It is done! Stories on the Skin: Tattoo Culture at FAU, our documentary about the project, had its World Premiere, January 18, 2013 in the University Theater, Boca Raton Campus. Read coverage of this exciting event: [University Press] and [University Press]

The film documents the creative collaboration between The Jaffe Center for Book Arts and Dr. Karen Leader, Department of Visual Arts and Art History. Faculty and students explore tattoos as books on the body, with stories worth telling in both word and image. The project approaches the practice of tattooing as a living art, a form of creative self- expression that permanently fixes important memories on the body.

In addition to the 40-minute film screening, the evening, a sort of “This American (Tattoo) Life,” showcased creative interpretations of tattoo culture. Highlights included musical performances, a theater/dance collaboration, spoken-word poetry, video, and an exhibition of original artworks by faculty and students.
