INKED is a multimedia show which aims to serve as a homage to the art of tattooing, the history behind it and artists working in the field today. The show features tattoo memorabilia, flash and equipment from prominent artists, as well as flash, tattooed hide, and work which explores the personal and cultural practices of tattooing from artists living in the greater Frederick area.
For decades in the West, tattooing was not perceived as artistic practice and only subcultures such as sailors and circus performers sported permanent body art. As acceptance increased, greater demand has led to further diversification of designs, examples of which we hope to showcase.
This show features work and tools from famous tattoo artists including, Ed Hardy, Philadelphia Eddie, Mike “Rollo” Malone, and Apo Whang Od.
