    This exhibition was developed and produced by the musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac in Paris.
    Organized by: Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts and Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac
    This exhibition explores the world of tattooing and offers a unique approach to this ancestral practice, presenting historical and contemporary works from a variety of countries. This is an exhibition which, for the first time, presents the artistic dimension of tattooing and its history throughout human culture from its first appearance, paying homage to the contemporary pioneers. The musée du quai Branly reflects the growing interest given in our contemporary societies to this art, which is both a subject of fascination and of identity.
    While tattooing has a rich technical and social history, which has already been thoroughly studied and represented, tattooists and the tattooed act as spokespeople for the art on a daily basis. Meanwhile, the role of these artists who have developed the art of tattooing has never been sufficiently appreciated. For the event, the exhibition's curators, Anne & Julien, have employed an extensive network to unite artworks by the most important tattoo artists.
