Experience the Royal Ontario Museum’s installation #ROMInk, a window into Toronto’s vibrant tattoo culture, the artists, their work and the stories behind.
To preview the Royal Ontario Museum’s upcoming exhibition Tattoos: Ritual. Identity. Obsession. Art., #ROMInk showcases the work of some of Canada and Toronto’s foremost tattoo artists. Watch daily live tattooing from 12 to 5 pm and share the stories behind your own tattoos on January 23 and 24 as part of the ROM’s #ROMInk video essay. Join us for a sneak preview of the Tattoos exhibition opening April 2, 2016 which provides a unique approach to understanding ancient practices, histories, meanings and how the relationship between the tattooed and the tattooist has led to the revival of the global phenomenon of body art.
Whether you’re a passionate member of the tattoo community, or drawn to the history and beauty of body art, or someone who wants to understand the world of tattooing, #ROMInk is your chance to explore the ink beneath the skin.
*Tattooing sessions have been pre-arranged through the individual artists.
