Ritual. Identity. Obsession. Art. Tattoos have a storied and diverse past, with practices dating back at least 5,000 years. Indelibly marking one’s skin has signified passage into adulthood, a sense of community, healing, art, punishment, and personal identity. The new exhibition at The Field Museum, Tattoo, examines myriad and dynamic practices of tattooing around the world and throughout time—from Japan, Polynesia, the US, Europe, North Africa, and points beyond. The exhibition includes a thoughtful exploration of a new generation of practitioners who are creating new forms of expression, while drawing upon the great ritual and artistic practices of the past.
