Time: Tattoo Art Today

Time: Tattoo Art Today is the catalogue of a hugely successful exhibition organised at Somerset House in London in 2014.

An artistic project on the concept of time interpreted by 70 international tattoo artists who put down their tattoo machines to express themselves in other media for the occasion.

The theme of time has powerful associations with the essence of tattoo and here, using other media (oil on canvas, watercolour, Japanese silk painting, air brush and much more) the artist who took part in the project brought to life singular works of art. We find the most diverse themes from skulls to butterflies, the goddess Kali to gorgeous Chicano beauties, and the purest abstraction This catalogue is a valuable resource for tattoo and art lovers alike.
