Tiffany Ackerman and Kim Monroe

I am uninked, even in the places you can’t see. I occasionally get astonished looks when I say that. While I understand up to 40 percent of Gen. X and Millennials have one or more tattoos, those of us, ahem, of slightly older age do not. But I do appreciate the artistry. I love looking at the stories peeking out from arms, ankles and backs. This wearable creativity usually shows up in other art forms, as is the case with the paintings by local artists Tiffany Ackerman and Kim Monroe currently on display at Prophecy Ink. While both artists use skeletons and bones, Ackerman’s works have a Day of the Dead feel while Monroe’s paintings are reminiscent of the West and Southwest.
