Tattoo Speaks: project at Visual Arts Alberta Gallery: Edmonton

TATTOO SPEAK

DL4ao you have a tattoo?

Does your tattoo have an interesting story behind it or was inspired by something special? Does it represent a significant time in your life?

On October 3rd 2015, Wachira will be hosting a photo shoot from 12pm to 4pm at the Visual Arts Alberta Gallery, 3rd Floor, 10215 – 112 Street NW Edmonton, AB T5K 1M7. Those who would like to share their tattoo pieces and the stories behind them are welcome to drop by. Additional sessions will be held on November 14 and December 5. For further information please contact: karuewachira@gmail.com.

Through photography, Tattoo Speak will capture the deeply personal stories behind these beautiful pieces of body art while deconstructing the negative stereotypes associated with them. The project by Karue Wachira, an Alberta photographer, will take place over the next year.
