On the record ... with Rick 'Spider' Kramer
SYCAMORE – The American Indian masks are the first thing you are likely to notice when you enter Rick “Spider” Kramer’s tattoo studio.
“These are spirit masks,” said Kramer, owner of Spider Tattooz in Sycamore and creator of the masks. “What I mean by that is, I try to keep the Native American spirit alive because there is so much stuff out there for other community groups, but never for Native Americans.”
The life-sized molded leather masks are adorned with feathers, jewelry, shields and other decorative touches that Kramer says make them the most authentic in the world. Kramer taps into his own American Indian heritage to decorate the masks in a way that is authentic to the various tribes that once inhabited the United States and Canada.
