The artists who work at Amor Eterno Arte in East Oakland, California consider their artwork to be healing, whether it’s on the wall or on your skin. Chamuco Cortez is a tattoo artist there who focuses on promoting Aztec art, symbolism, and culture in his tattoos and creates an intentional space for his clients to reconnect with their ancestral pre-Hispanic heritage. From the initial prayer offering to finished product, we see Chamuco at work creating art that is both a sacrifice as well as medicine.
