About

A ground-breaking and comprehensive history of British tattooing, featuring cutting edge designers, leading academics and major private collectors to tell a story that challenges long-standing myths and pre-conceptions.

Visit the largest tattoo exhibition in the UK

Showcasing the work of major tattoo artists this is the largest gathering of real objects and original tattoo artwork ever assembled in the UK and celebrates the astonishingly rich artistic heritage of tattooing as an art form.

Private collections of tattoo material

The exhibition features items from three of the most important private collections of tattoo material in Britain, belonging to Willie Robinson, Jimmy Skuse, and Paul ‘Rambo’ Ramsbottom, providing a rare opportunity to display original artwork and artefacts not otherwise on public display.

The story of Jessie Knight

The exhibition also delves into previously unseen private archives that reveal hidden histories, including the incredible story of Britain’s pioneering female tattoo artist, Jessie Knight.

The exhibition features over 400 original artworks, photographs and historic artefacts.
