My name is Emmanuel, E The Drug or just E. I'm a self taught tattoo artist based in Atlanta, GA. Tattooing professionally for 6 years and I plan on going for a long time.
Most artist will usually have a particular style they specialize in but I've never gravitated much to one style of tattooing. I love doing creative script, fonts, neo-traditional. I jump back and forth between dark, creepy black and grey pieces, or vibrant, colorful fantasy inspired images. Whether its a painting, drawing or tattoo, my work makes people feel like theyre in a lucid dream or they "wont sleep at night." I dabble in other forms of art as well, but tattooing is my top priority, so come book an appointment with me!
The word tattoo, or tattow in the 18th century, is a loanword from the Samoan word tatau, meaning "to strike". The Oxford English Dictionary gives the etymology of tattoo as "In 18th c. tattaow, tattow. From Polynesian (Samoan, Tahitian, Tongan, etc.) tatau. In Marquesan, tatu." Before the importation of the Polynesian word, the practice of tattooing had been described in the West as painting, scarring or staining.
Current cultural understandings of tattoos in Europe and North America have been greatly influenced by long-standing stereotypes based on deviant social groups in the 19th and 20th centuries. Particularly in North America tattoos have been associated with stereotypes and folklore.
Tattoos fall into three broad categories: purely decorative (with no specific meaning); symbolic (with a specific meaning pertinent to the wearer); pictorial (a depiction of a specific person or item). In addition, tattoos can be used for identification.
