Torbay Tattoo Tales

Tattoos can reveal personal stories, represent shared history and identity, as well as showcase artistry—or sometimes they just are what they are!

The Torbay Tattoo Tales film was commissioned as part of a wider project which aims to be one of the world’s largest digital collection of Tattoo’s and associated stories captured over 3 months in South Devon UK

Check out the project micro site where you will discover hundreds of Tattoo Tales and the project blog is where visiting/invited academics and experts explore impacts and discoveries unearthed by the project.
