Italian tattoos

Why it’s taken so long for tattoo fever to reach The Boot is anybody’s guess. Maybe in a country with such a rich cultural heritage and an almost casual popular intimacy with truly great fine art, the lowbrow attraction of tattooing isn’t as necessary an outlet of expression as it is in some other, less graced countries. Who needs a clumsy pin-up tattooed on their arm in a place where a working man can take his lunch break in a public piazza, surrounded by statues from the Renaissance masters, instead of sitting on a bench looking at cheesy billboards for suntan lotion and cassette tapes? Maybe there’s a connection.
