Not Just A Girl: Tattoo Podcast

By Eddy Lou
Welcome to Not Just A Girl: Tattoo Podcast where every week we hear from socially conscious and incredibly talented tattoo artists about their lives and art through an intersectional feminist lens. We will discuss how they came to tattooing, their experiences in a marginalised group within tattooing and how they enact resistance against the patriarchy through their art.
