Celebrating Milwaukee's own Rembrandt of the rind

Since July 3, a small corner of the contemporary galleries at Milwaukee Art Museum have been home to "Tattoo: Flash Art of Amund Dietzel." And with walls covered in the kind of catalog-of-wares one sees posted in tattoo parlors around the globe, this section of the museum has become not only a tribute, but something of a recreation of the Milwaukee tattoo joints Dietzel ran for half the 20th century.
