If art’s purpose is to challenge viewers—to make a statement or alter perception—then can’t a tattoo be considered art, too? Like most hotly debated issues, the answer is subjective. However, as the stigma surrounding tattoos fades (studies shows that one in five American adults has one), tattoo lovers approach their tattoos like fine art, collecting from a variety of artists much in the same way that art collectors amass canvases and sculptures. In the last century, tattooing has made its debut in galleries, museums, auctions, and conventions. July marks its exhibition at Nickel Plate Arts.
Join the opening reception on Friday, July 3rd from 6:00–9:00 p.m. as Nickel Plate celebrates tattoo artists with live music, refreshments, and drinks. Appointments books and artists will be onsite, available for scheduling bookings. After the reception, “Tattoo Expo” will be open to the public during normal gallery hours: Wednesday–Friday from Noon–5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Submission deadline is Friday, June 26.
Submission deadline is Friday, June 26. Show runs July 3 – 31, 2020.
