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 commissioned this from Yoni Zilber! Just saw it reposted on a new page called Tattoo Love Care, https://www.instagram.com/ttt_l_c/, created by @blackclaw @tttism @zacscheinbaum. Their description is "Aid-Promote-Educate. A place to help tattooers in need and discover new artists, causes and events." Check it out!
    • Hello, I'm new to the site and looking for some advice. Thanks in advance for any help. I'm just trying to get a second opinion. So I have a few tattoos, mostly all done by the same artist. A very well known shop and artist in the area. Iv never had this issue before with any other tattoos. But started a sleeve back in January and my last session was 4 weeks ago. My arm just finished peeling from the last session and half of the ink did not stay in my arm. Everything else that has been done looks fine except the top of my arm. I sent pics to the artist and he said it must of been the ink he used as I didn't not do anything different then I usually do during the healing process. He said he can go back over it but then our state got shut down due to covid19. So now the shop won't open back up until God knows when. It doesn't hurt,itch or is swollen or anything it just looks like pink/damage skin. I was just trying to get a second opinion that this can be fixed. Should I have to worry about anything between now and when I can get it fixed.  Thanks again David.
