Wear Your Art On Your Sleeve

Odds are, if you are reading this article, you love art. To me, there are three levels in which this love manifests: art that you love but don’t want hanging up in your living room, art that you love that you do want hanging up in your living room, and the deepest level of true art love- art that you actually want to be a part of you for the rest of your life. This is where the tattoo artist enters the scene. Many art critics over the years have overlooked the realm of tattoo art, but as we found out, the atmosphere is changing and tattoo art is slowly becoming a legitimized medium. Our BAPS reporters take you inside the world of the Berlin tattoo art scene at the Grand Opening and Exhibition of Decay Parlour and talk to progressive tattoo enthusiasts and renowned tattoo artist, Myra Brodsky


When most people think of tattoo art, the images that initially come to mind are skulls, tribal symbols, and tacky naked women. Myra Brodsky’s work shatters that mold with her stylish designs and illustrations influenced by Victorian-era burlesque. Although she is only 24 years old, Myra is a rising star in the tattoo world and having just opened her new, antique brothel-themed studio Decay Parlour in Prenzlauerberg with her twin sister Rebecca Brodsky, it is only up from here for this talented young artist. Check out our video from the opening night and catch a glimpse into the inked out world of Berlin tattoo art.
