Rich Copley: New exhibit at Transylvania mixes martial arts and tattoos

Angela Baldridge was at a bar when a mixed martial arts match came on television. "I turned to my friend, and I said, 'This is so grotesque. I can't believe anyone would watch this for fun. It's so violent and terrible,'" Baldridge recalls, laughing. She thinks that's funny because the next day she was taking a call from Transylvania University anthropology professor Barbara LoMonaco inviting Baldrdige to go deep into the world of mixed martial arts via the fighters' tattoos.
