ABOUT BLOOD LINES
Blood Lines is focused on the acknowledgement and knowledge sharing of traditional Indigenous tattooing practices. As a part of this event, we had gathered together artists who are community centred in the revival of traditional tattooing through an informed understanding of the importance that the practice has had and continues to have on Indigenous bodies. The influence of traditional tattooing will further the teaching and passing down of knowledge in symbolism, ritual, ceremony, and technique amongst other Indigenous peoples.
We invited the public to take part in the revival by attending the panel discussions, observing traditional tattooing methods during the live tattoo flash day, and poster sale.
