Paris Expo

Tattoers and tattooed at the museum of Quai Branly - Paris

 

A beautiful exhibition that highlights tattoos from the sources till today. While this body ornament is praised today, let’s not forget that in Western countries it used to be considered as a sign of infamy, crime or circus attraction. On the contrary in so-called "primitive » societies in Oceania, Africa or the Middle East, it had and still has to a certain extent a social, religious and mystic role. The exhibition explains the history of tatoos with many photos and video documents. Works presented exude real eroticism… Many gay couples visiting last weekend ! We were all under the charm of these bodies transformed into a work of art. More information >>
