Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed

An exciting new temporary exhibition at The Historic Dockyard Chatham this summer.

Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Reveals 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.

The exhibition takes place in No.1 Smithery. Entry to the exhibition is included in an entry ticket to the Dockyard.
