Do not miss this opportunity to meet one of the masters of the tribal tattoo! Known as the father of modern tribal tattooing, Leo is the owner of tattoo studio Spiral Tattoo in Ann Arbor. He'll show us some of his work, share his expertise, and talk about the process of getting a tattoo.

Leo began tattooing in 1981 in San Francisco, under the direction of Don Ed Hardy, who encouraged Leo’s collecting of imagery relating to traditional tattooing from around the world. After designing many neo-tribal tattoos in the 1990's and becoming a world-wide phenomenon overnight, Leo has now opened the eyes of many people to the intrinsic art of the tribal tattoo.
