Experience The History Of Body Art & Tattoos At #ROMink

Picture of Culture Trip
Updated: 31 March 2016
Tattoos: whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit the history of body art is an intriguing one. Torontonians can explore the fascinating history and evolution of tattooing at the Royal Ontario Museum this spring and summer. Arriving from Paris’s musée du quai Branly, Tattoos: Ritual. Identity. Obsession. Art. has already received rave reviews in Europe. The exhibition explores the 5000-year-old world of tattooing, putting on a visual history of body art and markings and ancient tools. Expect to see commissioned tattooed silicone body reproductions, inked by some of the hottest contemporary tattoo artists around the world. As the ROM suggests, ‘come discover the ink beneath the skin.’

📅 April 2nd – September 5th, 2016
