Tattoo artists worked with new surface

Tattoos and Ceramic, has that something in common? It actually does!

From June, the 2nd Ceramic museum Princessehof in Leeuwarden will present an exhibition with tattoo art on porcelain.
Nine international and national tattoo artists worked with new surface: ceramic. The results show the versatility of the contemporary tattoo art.The exhibition Tattoo & Ceramics is a collaboration between the Princessehof, Leeuwarden-Fryslân Cultural Capital of Europe 2018 and Sundaymorning @ EKWC.

In the exhibition, there are a number of dinnerware can be seen that have been painted by the tattoo artists. The setup shows that tattoos and ceramics have a lot in common. Both are centuries-old crafts that are practiced all over the world.  During Tattoo & Ceramics the styles and crafts come together in an intimate exhibition.
