Meet The Italian Artists Inking Museum-Worthy Tattoos

Tattoos may be more socially acceptable than they once were, but a nice sleeve hasn’t yet become a marker of taste and refinement quite like, say, a collection of art on your wall.

Italian tattoo artist Marco Manzo has made it his mission to fully bring body art into the world of fine art and high fashion. His delicate blackwork tattoos, which draw on Venetian lace and Victorian jewelry for their intricate patterns, make that goal seem perfectly reasonable. Lately, he and his wife, Francesca Boni, who designs the intricate details of each piece, have been inking more geometric designs for men, but they are best known for their lacy, exquisitely feminine ones.
