Tattoos in Cuba

Art is the only thing that can save people, the only thing, because art allows to see misery and fight it. Art allows us to distinguish what needs to be changed and what should be left alone, such as the kindness of the people, the sharing of bread, wine…

Tattoos in Cuba

Since Aboriginal people, in Cuba, tattooing has been an art and a way of communicating. Today and despite the years that have passed, it continues to be a language used among groups of young people and adults in the Cuban society.

Today, tattoos go beyond of a form of expression. Today it is regarded as fashion, culture, modernism and art. The world has had great personalities who have followed and lived the tattoo on their skin, as the most long-held desire for their existence. Therefore, the tastes and preferences of adolescents and young people are not eliminated by any absurd pattern of a politician, nor by manipulations of unfounded ideologies.

Frank Ernesto Laurencio Suarez is a 27-year-old who lives in a small big bridge neighborhood in Havana and who does wonders with his hands, reaffirming that tattooing is a real art.
