Somerset House is currently hosting an exhibition on tattoo art. I don’t have any tattoos myself, but I can appreciate the incredible artistry that goes into them.

Time: Tattoo Art Today presents artworks from 70 of the world’s most influential tattoo artists, including Ed Hardy, Horiyoshi III, Paul Booth and Rose Hardy. The artists were commissioned to create new works on the theme of time. The result is a varied collection of artworks made with a range of different materials and methods including watercolour, sculpture, oil painting and painting on silk.

There were some incredible pictures, wonderfully detailed. I still don’t think I want a tattoo myself, but I can’t help but admire the quality of the artists’ work.
