Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed

About Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed

This exhibition offers a genuinely ground-breaking and comprehensive history of British tattooing, allowing 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.

Rozelle House Museum and Galleries is the only Scottish venue for this stunning exhibition, offering the largest gathering of real objects and original tattoo artwork ever assembled in the UK. Adding a local twist, we are delighted to be working with Sean Cahill and Gordon Killin of the Petal Faced Gypsy Tattoo Studio in Prestwick, who will be showcasing their talent and skills, in a specially built studio in Rozelle House.

The exhibition showcases the work of major tattoo artists, includes items from three of the most important private collections of tattoo material in Britain, presents previously unseen private archives that reveal hidden histories, and looks to the future, with the ‘100 Hands Project’ – original designs by leading tattoo artists working across the UK.

Exhibition is at Rozelle House, set within Rozelle Park, Monument Road, Ayr KA7 4NQ – Last entry to the exhibition is 3.45pm – Under 12’s Free

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
