Exhibition Night – “Tattoos”

30 July 2021 @ 19:00 - 21:30

The pressure is on to display high quality, creative images to follow on from May’s successful “Rocks” Exhibition.

Brief – Tattoos

Entries for this theme will depict images that fall under the following description.

A Tattoo is a form of body modification where a design is made by inserting ink, dyes, and/or pigments, either indelible or temporary, into the dermis layer of the skin. The art of making tattoos is tattooing. As such Tattoos fall into three broad categories:

  • purely decorative (with no specific meaning);
  • symbolic (with a specific meaning pertinent to the wearer);
  • and pictorial (a depiction of a specific person or item).

In addition, tattoos can be used for identification such as ear tattoos on livestock as a form of branding, so don’t just limit yourselves to human tattoos. Inclusive are also items or tools used or associated with the art of Tattooing.

This is a challenging topic, one that may not appeal to everyone, but please keep an open mind while searching for your imagery.
