atl tattoo artist Lauren visconti

As an art student, Atlanta tattooist Lauren Visconti began visiting the Carlos's Greek and Roman galleries, where she loved to draw the drapery, anatomy, and curls of the ancient statues. Curator of Greek and Roman Art Ruth Allen and Lauren join in conversation about her interest in classical imagery as well as issues of personal adornment and identity. Lauren (@littlestmoon) has created a limited edition set of flash inspired by motifs found on the gems in the exhibition Making an Impression: The Art and Craft of Ancient Engraved Gemstones.
