Tattoo preservationist makes case for saving skin art
How much do you love your tattoo? Enough to have it preserved after you die? Enough to give it to a loved one as an heirloom?
A new non-profit organization — The National Association for the Preservation of Skin Art — has created a process for removing and saving skin art.
Founder Charles Hamm, who volunteered as the original guinea pig for the process, joins Shad to explain why he thinks skin art is worth preserving and to respond to critics who find it creepy.
