Doreen Garner's Invisible Man Tattoo | Art21 “New York Close Up”

Whose stories do tattoos tell?

In 2018, at the height of the Black Panther motion picture excitement, Doreen Garner hosts Invisible Man Tattoo, a pop-up tattoo shop in Brooklyn's Recess art space. A noted sculptor and licensed tattoo artist, Garner swaps sculpture for skin, and inks iconic Black American heroes and imagery on those who identify as being of the African Diaspora.

Doreen Garner (b. 1986, Philadelphia, PA, USA) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Learn more about the artist at: art21.org/artist/doreen-garner/
