The First Tattoo Artist: Sutherland MacDonald: Talk @Somerset House by Dr Matt Lodder

Recommended Posts

I've been following the good Doctor for a while now on Twitter. Always provides an excellent insight into the history of tattooing, correcting (on numerous occasions) the media with their inaccurate portrayal of tattooed peoples. This looks excellent, it's only a few days before the London Convention too! I've got my ticket, will I see any of you there?

Art historian Matt Lodder will delve into the birth of English tattooing as an artistic profession in the 1880s, and discuss the life and work of Sutherland MacDonald, whose parlour was based above a Turkish baths on Jermyn Street in London. This illustrated talk, complementing the Time: Tattoo Art Today exhibition in the Embankment Galleries, will feature never-before-seen images of MacDonald's remarkable work.
