Searching For Tattoo Talent

Exeter Phoenix are looking for a self-employed tattoo artist, based in the Exeter area, to set up a pop-up tattoo studio as part of an upcoming art exhibition.

The studio will operate both as a functioning commercial business, and also as a work of art in its own right. Cardiff based visual artist S Mark Gubb is bringing his project to Exeter Phoenix as part of an exhibition called History is Written By the Winners in early 2014.

‘I am keen that this pop-up opportunity helps a tattooist without a regular shop or studio to develop their business while benefiting from the profile and busy city-centre footfall at Exeter Phoenix,’ said the artist this week.

The project is inspired both by the politics of the pop-up economy and by tattooing as a form of communication.

Interested ink-ers should contact art@exeterphoenix.org.uk to find out more.
