Old Bold Gold

The focus of this project is to document tattooing before 1990, specifically in South Wales and the South West of England. This pre-internet era of tattooing was documented somewhat in magazines and books however much of it only lives on in a kind of oral history form that can only be experienced by meeting the practitioners and wearers of the art form and hearing their stories in person. It is also a record of how trends changed within tattooing and how the work ages in the skin over time.
