Tattoos and travel
20 November, 2017, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The process of selecting and experiencing tattoos is profoundly related to identity. People who have experienced the process of body modification and who wear and display their tattoos can be said to be performing identity. Travel has often been integral to tattooing, from its use amongst pilgrims, its presence in nautical and seafaring cultures, and as a feature in today’s holiday tattoos. This event discusses the meaning of tattoos and invites the audience to discuss their own experiences.
