Gillian Goldstein is a native New Yorker and received her first tattoo at the age of 17. She studied illustration at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco and is an apprentice with Regino Gonzales at Troy Denning’s Invisible NYC.
She works in graphite, watercolor, inks and acrylics when working on her personal artwork.
Her work was chosen for the cover of Art by Tattooists: Beyond Flash which is where I was fortunate enough to discover her work.
Live Free is a documentary short on Royal Street Tattoo written by Bijani Casalan and directed by Michael Howell. Although Live Free features Royal Street Tattoo and “covers the philosophy of tattooing as seen from the eyes of the artists at the shop” the documentary goes much deeper. 15 minutes in length, this short is definitely worth the time to view.

If you’re in the Boston area check out Dr. Lakra’s first solo exhibition in the United States. The exhibition runs through September 16th.
“JerĂłnimo LĂłpez RamĂrez, also known as Dr. Lakra, is an renowned tattoo artist who lives and works in Oaxaca, Mexico. Under his pseudonym, loosely translating as â€śDr. Delinquent,â€ť he draws over vintage printed materials and found objects rather than skin, manipulating images of pin-up girls, 1940s Mexican businessmen, luchadores, and Japanese sumo wrestlers.
Referencing diverse body art traditions from Chicano, Maori, Thai, and Philippine cultures, Dr. Lakra layers spiders, skulls, crosses, serpents, and devils over these existing images. Playful, naughty, and often intentionally vulgar, his work challenges social norms by blurring cultural identities.”
Listen to the introduction by the exhibition curator Pedro Alonzo below.
