This week, Mexican tattoo artist, Dr. Lakra, has a show opening at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Dr. Lakra is a tattoo artist who was born and raised and currently lives in Mexico. Lakra has traveled the world with his work and has studied with traditional tattooists in Philipines and Thailand. He’s taken his tattoo work to another level with adding tattoo imagery to old photographs and 3 dimensional items. One of the items he’s used is a Kewpie doll which he decorates with tattoo pictures. He also covers old photographs with tattoo artwork like the samples here. I love the combination of the old retro pinup style art combined with the tattoo work. Click here to see more of his work.
