Ink connects. The collaboration between Royal Delft and the Schiffmacher Tattoo Heritage is a layered, deeply rooted and respectful ode to Delft Blue and the art of tattooing. A unique collaboration between two traditional crafts from an old world, brought across the seas from the east, and rich in culture, tradition and symbolism. Art forms that are applied only once by hand, with needle in the skin or with paintbrush on the baked clay.
This book complements the exposition. Schiffmacher Royal Blue Tattoo opens on November 29 2019 and is on show until March 15, 2020 at Royal Delft in Delft, The Netherlands.
Dutch Graffiti Library is closely involved as participant of the ‘Schiffmacher Tattoo Heritage’.
