Who doesn’t love jazz hands? Used to show off a state of cheesy exuberance, maybe the gesticulate equivalent of a dad joke when used in a non-ironic manner. Ok, so it’s not for everyone. Maybe you’re a little more edgy. Brazilian artist Evelyn Tannus feels you. She’s created a series of devil-horn sign flashing ceramic hands, each tattooed with themed motifs. From oriental-esque flowers to kimono wearing mice, to your standard ink parlor rose, hearts and snakes, you might not whip these hands out for display in front of polite company. But that’s not the kind of company you tend to keep anyway.
