TATTOO: British Tattoo Art Revealed

21 Mar 2020 - 21 Jun 2020

New temporary exhibition for Spring 2020

21 March - 21 June 2020

TATTOO: British Tattoo Art Revealed

Our exciting new temporary exhibition for Spring 2020 offers a ground-breaking insight into the history of British tattooing. Featuring over 400 original artworks, photographs and historic artefacts, it tells a story that challenges the most deeply-held myths and pre-conceptions about tattooing.

From ruffians to royalty; from sailors to socialites; from pilgrims to punks: tattoos have been etched into bodies throughout British history. Displaying the work of major tattoo artists, including George Burchett, via the Bristol Tattoo Club, Alex Binnie and Lal Hardy, the exhibition showcases the largest gathering of real objects and original tattoo artwork ever assembled in the UK.

  • Entry to Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed is included in an admission ticket for The Historic Dockyard Chatham.
  • Discounted tickets are available online and are valid for 12 months.
