A Mobile Tattoo Parlour has been touring Knowle West this summer, digitally collecting people’s pieces of body art. This September we’re holding special preview event where you can find out what the Parlour has discovered…
I Will Always Have You is a collaboration between KWMC, Stand + Stare and Play Nicely. It explores Bristol’s tattoo culture and the fascinating stories behind why people have tattoos – a heady mix of lost loves, raw regrets, and personal memories.
The preview event will take place on Thursday 11th September, from 5.30-7.30pm. You will be able to:
- Watch tattooing live and close-up
- Play with interactive tattoo installations
- Explore tattoo culture
- Enter a free raffle to win a tattoo
Also, join Dr John Troyer from the Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath to explore the history and cultural role of memorial tattoos.
If you would like to come, please reserve your place at iwillalways.eventbrite.co.uk or call 0117 903 0444.
Drinks will be served; ink will be spilled…
