1. "Stories on the Skin: Tattoo Culture at FAU" is a creative collaboration between The Jaffe Center for Book Arts and Dr. Karen J. Leader, of the Department of Visual Arts and Art History, Florida Atlantic University. The origins of our project stem not from any hypothesis or opinion about the practice itself. As an art historian collaborating with a center committed to books as aesthetic objects, our focus is on a visual medium, the tattoo, and the textual component, the narrative, which, through interpretation and performance, offer a deeper understanding of the artful presentation of the self to the world, on the pages of the body.
