Electric Ink at Ricco Maresca GalleryOur final stop for the evening was Body Electric curated by Margot Mifflin at Ricco Maresca Gallery. This show is all about vintage tattoo flash and original art by the most influential and innovative tattoo artists today (according to their website). The gallery was jam-packed and the crowd was edgy with intense energy. We liked this show so much that we stayed here the rest of the night and enjoyed the art on the walls. Bonus art were on people’s bodies as they showed off their tattoos. The work exhibited was mostly on paper and it was presented salon style to give it a tattoo shop display vibe but the only thing missing were the chairs and the ink gun. I must admit, after the show I was craving for new ink.

  1. When people ask “Can you recommend a tattoo artist? I would always recommend a highly reputable British artist, Tracey Emin. She has produced heartbreakingly erotic art that is truly unforgettable. The ‘Singing Bird’ tattoo in my left arm, for example. It conveys a deeply heartfelt message about love tinged with sadness and anger. I come across her other works (https://www.mutualart.com/Artist/Tracey-Emin/478FC7E241FE44E4/Artworks) and consider to add them to my collections.
