Dr. Lakra

Dr. Lakra (born Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez – his pseudonym loosely translates as Dr. Delinquent,)gained attention not only for designing tattoos, but for marking his two-dimensional painting and collage with tattoolike images – in essence, a tattoo artist who tattoos art itself. The artist transforms his obsession with 1950s imagery — vintage magazine advertisements, lucha libreand femmes fatales — and infuses them with humor and a diabolical edge. His 2004 exhibition “Pin-Up: Contemporary Collage & Drawing,” at the Tate Modern introduced him to a wide international audience.
