|Ink In the Cage: The Stories Behind MMA Fighter Tattoos|
12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Location: Morlan Gallery, Mitchel Fine Arts Center
While tattoos are common among mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters and are highly visible in the cage, the stories behind them are less public. Ink in the Cage is a photographic exploration of those tattoos which reveal unique aspects of fighter identities -- their convictions, passions, personal histories, and overcome obstacles. Through interview excerpts and larger-than-life images, observers are granted entré into the private lives of these athletes whose tattoos commemorate major turning points, serve as reminders of loved ones, echo religious sentiments, and are frequently symbols of the philosophy fighters live by, both inside and outside the cage.
