Time: Tattoo Art TodayTime: Tattoo Art Today at Somerset House is a free exhibition that presents original artworks from 70 of the world's leading and most influential tattoo artists. The likes of Ed Hardy, Horiyoshi III, Paul Booth and Mister Cartoon have been commissioned to create a completely new work that's based on the theme of time, presenting it on any medium and canvas apart from the skin surface. As a result, the exhibition will incorporate oil paintings, watercolours, traditional Japanese silk painting and much more. Time is a common motif in tattoo art, such as blossoms and the handle cross to signify life or skulls and the goddess Kali to denote death. This exhibition will showcase how over time the art of tattooing has progressed from simple stencils to inspiring art.
