British Tattoo Art Revealed Exhibition FALMOUTH


  • National Maritime Museum Cornwall Falmouth (map)

This highly anticipated exhibition offers a genuinely ground-breaking and comprehensive history of British tattooing, featuring cutting edge designers, leading academics and major private collectors, to tell a story that challenges long-standing myths and pre-conceptions about tattooing when it comes to class, gender and age, whilst at the same time giving a voice to and celebrating the astonishingly rich artistic heritage of tattooing as an art form in the UK.

Radu and Matt have both contributed to the ‘100 Hands Project’, curated by Alice Snape of ‘Things and Ink’ magazine, is based around one hundred silicone arms, each tattooed with an original design by 100 of the leading tattoo artists working across the UK. As a whole, the quality and diversity of this work is astonishing. This exhibit represents a major achievement for any Museum, and will create an important artistic legacy for future generations – an archival ‘snapshot’ of a form of art all too often lost to the ravages of time.
