Cannabis Tattoos: The Cross Section of Cultures with Scott Giannotti
Saturday, March 25th 6pm
Seminar Room 1
Free to attend, no registration necessary.
Description - Few times in history can we find when a movement has become an industry. When it comes to tattoos and cannabis both have come up from subculture into mainstream over the last few decades, but their intersection goes back thousands of years. In modern times, cannabis is becoming a mainstream medicine as tattooing is becoming a mainstream art. Join us as we look at where these cultures have woven together.
