Just got this announcement from Gallery AD about a wonderful tattoo exhibit by the Analog Tattoo Arts Kolective. This is billed as the third and final installment of a tattoo arts documentation project by the global tattoo community of the Analog Tattoo Arts Kolectiv.
BLOODWORK: BODIES is yet again an unprecedented, artistic and historic project 4 years in the making by 53 tattooers completing 119 backpieces & bodysuits from 5 continents presented in 360˚ interactive views. A 360˚ concept was developed in response to a common issue when viewing a photographed tattoo. That is, alone a photo often struggles to capture the fourdimensional aspects of large scale tattooing. “It looks amazing but I wish I could see it in person,” is a common phrase spoken by tattooers, who often are not visually satisfied until they can physically move around or handle the tattoo being observed. It’s a true statement from any sincere connoisseur. One really does need to follow the flow around and into the multi-dimensional aspects of a tattoo to completely understand what the tattooer is trying to convey.
