Presentation Abstract

This study analyzes the communication, culture, and gender performances within a tattoo shop in the southeastern United States. In this ethnographic research of a specific tattoo shop, a unique culture presents itself, characterizing verbal and nonverbal communication with "shop talk," masculinized performance, and an undefined "speech code" (Philipsen). This study is also underpinned by a global pandemic, the origins of which have become increasingly politicized, something that can be used as a scope through which to analyze communication.
