Art and Design: Ellen Greene's Tattooed Gloves

via the Jealous Curator

Artist Ellen Greene hand paints tattoo inspired images on vintage gloves, some of which you can see below. In her words the "traditional American tattoo is a symbol of masculine adventure, rebellion and sexual exploits. At the same time gloves were a staple of “good” American women, tattoos were only for sailors bikers and criminals. No proper woman also had tattoos – especially not on her hands."  Enjoy!
