A Mobile Tattoo Parlour toured Bristol this summer, digitally collecting pieces of body art and the stories behind them.

About

I Will Always Have You uncovers the lives, loves and human stories behind our tattoos - and features photographs, audio and interviews collected during the mobile tattoo parlour's tour. It also includes interactive installations where visitors can control large-scale 3D avatars bearing miniature versions of the collected tattoos. The exhibition is presented by Knowle West Media Centre, Play Nicely and Stand + Stare, and explores Bristol's tattoo culture and the fascinating stories behind why people have tattoos - a heady mix of lost loves, raw regrets, and personal memories. A preview event will take place at Knowle West Media Centre, Leinster Avenue, Bristol, on Thursday 11th September, from 5.30-7.30pm. You will be able to: Watch tattooing live and close-up Play with interactive tattoo installations Explore Knowle West's tattoo culture Enter a free raffle to win a tattoo Also, join Dr John Troyer from the Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath to explore the history and cultural role of memorial tattoos.
