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?

Book Tickets For The First Tattoo Artist: Sutherland MacDonald : Somerset House

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.

    • I went to the original post and pointed out the misspelling. They took the post down and said they were warning me not to reshare it. Yikes. Hope you can get the misspelling fixed somehow, OP. Oh, lord. Now the poor tattoo artist is threatening me with a lawyer. Even though I used her original caption and tagged her in it. 🤣
    • Is that word supposed to be whisper? I hope I am just reading it incorrectly ... 😬
    • No you can't "fix" it and it didn't move. It's ink under your skin, it doesn't move. Calm down and think! Don't tell everyone you know how much it sucks because no one will notice except you anyway. It's not on a piece of paper! Your skin moves and as your skin moves, the ink embedded in your skin will move. That's a nice tattoo. If I was a Tattooer and someone gave me grief about that I'd tell them to take their business elsewhere.
