Celebrating the Art of Ink
Hollywood tattoo artist Paul Timman to appear at Toledo Museum of Art
When Angelina Jolie needed to cover the tattoo of her ex-husband’s name with some new ink, she went to Hollywood’s elite: Paul Timman.
He’s not a household name, unless your household happens to be Tommy Lee’s or Mark Wahlberg’s. But Timman, the Toledo native and tattoo artist dubbed the “Rembrandt of Sunset Strip,” is who the Los Angeles elite trust with their skin. When he’s not wielding the needle at the famous Sunset Strip Tattoo parlor, he’s making house calls.
And as for Jolie—well, “she was a real sweetheart,” according to Timman.
Timman is returning to his hometown to discuss the relationships between art, tattooing and life during a free Masters Series lecture at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 5 at the Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle. See all
