Forever: The New Tattoo - Recap of Berlin Book Launch
The suggestion that “tattoos are not just for sailors any more” is a familiar one.
It might be surprising to learn, then, that the popular media has been reporting
the arrival of tattooing in high society for nearly one hundred years.
To celebrate the release of “Forever: The New Tattoo”, Gestalten hosted an
evening of informative and entertaining talks by renowned tattoo artists Alex
Binnie and Duncan X, as well as by heavily tattooed art historian Matt Lodder,
author of the book’s preface. Further tattoo protagonists, namely Jon John,
Liam Sparkes and Zoe Binnie, attended the event at the Gestalten Space in Berlin
and gave us additional insight.
