Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Exhibition

Newcastle Museum

Tue, 21 March 2017 Contact venue

This ground breaking photographic exhibition explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos along with its rich history and influence on modern tattoo practices.

Although tattooing is largely seen as an underground activity in Japan, Japanese tattoo artists have risen to become internationally acclaimed artists. Through the endurance and dedication of these artists, Japanese tattooing has persevered and is now internationally renowned for its artistry, lineage, historical symbolism, and skill.

Perseverance features the work of seven internationally acclaimed tattoo artists – Ryudaibori (formerly Horitaka), Horitomo, Horishiki, Miyazo, Shige, Junii and Yokohama Horiken – along with tattoo works by selected others. Through the display of a variety of photographs, including life-sized pictures of full body tattoos, these artists cover a broad spectrum of the current world of Japanese tattooing.
