Once in a while you see a tattoo that just speaks to your soul, at least I do. This is the inside of the right arm of Ellyn, my dietician friend. She is a GenXer who, like many other GenXers, is a frequent flyer. She has several tattoos. More important than the number of tattoos is that she is a participant in the biggest way that GenXers have changed the perception of tattoos. How? The way GenX has changed everything in our world: through media! Ellyn watches cable TV shows that showcase nothing but tattoos and their creators.
She watches many different cable shows on tattoo and stays current with the newest and best artists. On a trip to Las Vegas in 2013, Ellyn was thrilled to congratulate the most recent winner of Inkmasters, Joey Hamilton, while he was doing a guest appearance at Planet Hollywood. Serendipitously, he had a cancellation and Ellyn filled in the the vacant time slot with her own blank canvas–her arm.
