Black Tattoo Anthology is
one part enthography, one part anthropology, one part pop-culture.
Join us as we embark on a captivating journey, delving into the vibrant world of
Black tattooing, its rich culture, and the thriving renaissance it experiences today.
This initiative passionately follows and documents the narratives of black artists, pioneers, and community members who dare to break boundaries, embrace their heritage through the art of tattooing by coloring outside the line, and rewrite the history through our lens and skin.
By capturing these contemporary experiences, this project shines a spotlight on black artistry and tattoos on melanated skin, while underscoring the profound intentionality and influence of this art form within the culture. Moreover, this initiative meticulously traces the history of black tattoo culture, illuminating its significance in the present day and celebrating our successes.
Beyond being skin-deep, Black Tattoo Anthology serves as a profound link,
fostering a deeper connection to our ancestry within the members of Black tattoo culture - enriching our understanding of who we are as individuals and as a community.
This dynamic initiative acknowledges the past, celebrates the vibrant present, and enthusiastically lays the groundwork for the future,
uniting Black tattooing, and culture in an unparalleled manner – the heart of Afrofuturism.
