Ladies with Ink
WORD (126 Franklin St., Brooklyn)
Stacy Pershall (Loud in the House of Myself) grew up depressed and too smart for her own good, a situation that worsened over the years. After several breakdowns and suicide attempts, she found healing through behavior therapy, medication – and tattoos. Joining her in a panel discussion of what it can mean to be a tattooed lady are Kitty Joe Sainte-Marie and Sue Jeiven of East River Tattoo.
