4/11/14: Lila Rees opened Rock City Tattoo in Barre 5 1/2 years ago and has been leaving her mark on Vermonters' bodies ever since. Her shop has the feel of a Victorian sitting room and Lila's other passions are on full display: her paintings and 58 pieces of taxidermy.

Eva spent the afternoon with Lila as she worked on a complex sleeve tattoo.

Music: "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady," Harold Arlen & Yip Harburg, performed by The Marx Brothers in the film "At the Circus"
