Possibly one of the most permanent forms of artistic statements to express oneself lies in the unabashed practice of tattoo art. From being taboo to now being accepted as an extension of popular culture, it has grown to encompass a wide range of sensibilities. The Heartwork Tattoo Festival, being held for the first time in the city, is an international forum, wherein 60 artists from India and overseas will be participating in an attempt to celebrate the evolution of tattoos.

When Johnny Depp said, “My body is my journal, and my tattoos are my story,” a few years ago, it stirred up some curiosity about what he really meant. The community of tattoo supporters obviously understood well that the words stemmed out of an unceasing passion for inking. However, it took some time to get that fervour across to the others. Similarly, this festival tries to reinforce that tattoos are not merely an act of rebellion or a bold expression of the self, but a serious statement of purpose.

The event will witness live workshops by three well-known artists—Paul Booth, Anil Gupta and Andy Shou—on various art practices and design methods for upcoming artists.

December 4 to 6 at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, IP Estate, from 12 noon to 8 pm.
