Tampa Beacon – Carrollwood/Citrus Park

CARROLLWOOD — There was a time, and not all that long ago, when someone with, say, a full sleeve of tattoos would get a lot of double-takes in public.

Certainly some would be out of admiration. Plenty others, however — and regardless of the artwork — were made in a more negative, wary fashion.

Times have changed quite a bit over the past couple of decades, but some stigmas and stereotypes die hard.

This week at the Carrollwood Cultural Center, Shanna Goodwin will lead an engaging talk that aims to not only counter such mindsets, but also offer insights into the history of tattooing throughout human existence.
