Do you tattoo? Are tattoos body art? Rebellion? Personal expression? Clanship? Decadence? Reminiscence? Invitation to look? disguise? This session invites discussion of tattoos, their meanings, their creation, their role/s in our lives. Share your knowledge, tattoos, and techniques.

We welcome proposals from all disciplines exploring tattoos and tattooing within historic and contemporary popular culture. Topics may include, but are not limited to - tattoos in body and gender politics; tattoos in literature and film; tattoos in fine art; and techniques in tattooing. We are particularly interested in projects that examine the role of popular visual culture on the refining and redefining of the contemporary tattoo aesthetic.
