Did you know that Afro-punk movie director James Spooner is also a visual artist, a graphic designer and… a tattoo artist? James now works at Timeless Tattoo in Los Angeles, using a completely vegan procedure. He was even asked to do an Afro-punk tattoo recently! “It is always the greatest of compliments when I’m told my film Afro-Punk has changed someones life”, he says. “The compliment reaches ‘unbelievable’ when someone gets a tattoo related to it.” Let’s take a look at some of James’ creations.
