New Ask Guy Column: How Do I Educate Myself As A Collector?

 

I've really been enjoying the broad variety of questions I've been getting from both clients and artists for my monthly Ask Guy column that I publish through Tattoo Magazine. This month's question was pretty broad though, being from a collector who wanted to get a better education about art so they could make more informed decisions about getting tattooed. Many collectors arrive at this point, where they are starting to get larger work and to recognize that they have particular tastes and needs as a collector. I've tried to narrow my answer down to the essentials so that someone who has very little experience with art history can get more perspective on what makes a good tattoo and, more importantly, how to find the right tattoo for each particular collector's needs. Look for it in Tattoo Magazine #296, on newsstands now... or you can take a look at the column here at www.tattooeducation.com, along with an extensive archive of past columns and other material. Don't forget to submit your own questions, they are what keep this column rolling!
