märk mig

Are you between 6 and 12 years old? If yes, come down and meet us at Biblioteket (the city library) inVäven, Umeå on Saturday Feb 27. You will find us in the Skapa Formverkstad between 11am and 2 pm.

Märk mig means Mark me, and we will let ourselves be inspired by books and images of tattoos and tattooed people from different cultures and ages and think about why people always and everywhere have been painting on their bodies. We look at tattoos as adornment, as a way of talking about who you are, as a quiet communication.

We will be working together on making our own tattoos on paper – and maybe some on our skin too ;)

Look forward to seeing you there!
