Throughout my time of getting tattooed by Jet at Love Hate Tattoo here in Rochester, NY, as well as conducting interviews with him and Aidan Monahan, Angelina Pelano’s name has popped up multiple times. Both Jet and Aidan have spoken of her in high regard, and both credited Angelina with making tattooing in Rochester what it is. Unfortunately, Angelina was forced to quit tattooing way before I even lived in Rochester, so I wasn’t around when she was making her mark in this town. However, I think it’s safe to say that she has had a great influence on some tremendous tattooers here, which can be easily seen just by looking at the works of Aidan and Jet. Luckily, my girlfriend was able to find a great interview that Angelina did with Subculture. It’s not super long, so take a few moments and check it out.
