DOREEN GARNER

Doreen Garner is a Philly born Brooklyn based sculptor and inscriber of flesh. As a self taught tattooer, she often combines the process of permanent mark making with her performance work. Previous projects include Invisible Man Tattoo (Recess Art) a pop up tattoo shop that specifically focused on imagery celebrating black history and black excellence, and Alternative modes of Penetration (MoMA PS1) a curated tattoo experience/ performance in collaboration with Tamara Santibanez, Anderson Luna, and Tommy Martinez. In addition to doing commissioned tattoos at Saved, Doreen is currently working on #THEBLACKPANTHERPROJECT where she tattoos black panther heads on those standing in solidarity with the Black Panther Movement via shared image.
