Jewish Tattooing by Joey Ramona

“In Joey’s work, Jewish tradition is carried on in a new, radically empowered way: the knowledge of one’s own Jewishness and sense of belonging is transformed into a physical, visual narrative, carried in tattoo form wherever one might go.”

— Foreword, Alyssa Stokvis-Hauer, Artistic Director
