Tattoo Parlour is a showcase of artworks made by artisans who also make tattoos. These are tattoo artists in the broadest and best sense of the term. From skin to canvas to laser cut dollar bills these are artists who are at once immersed in tattoo culture but also their own creative practice. Forget cliches and parodies of tattoo imagery - Tattoo Parlour delves a little deeper and explore artists who are influenced by different dimensions of what it means to be tattooed, make a tattoo and understand the language of tattoo discourse.
