Documents

The project, running from 7th- 9th October, will coincide with Frieze and will feature a new series of nine works; tattooed pig skin encased in stainless steel frames in liquid preservative. Whole Glory London will also see the artist tattooing randomly selected participants who will place their arm through a hole in a wall. The participant will have no idea what is being created until Scott has finished and they pull their arm out of the hole.

 

The project gives the bravest and luckiest candidates the chance to be inked by the same hand that tattooed Heath Ledger, Marc Jacobs, Orlando Bloom and Courtney Love.

 

 

"I'm a very private person. For me, a tattoo is my way of sharing a part of me with the rest of the world. I'm literally wearing my heart on my sleeve. Whole Glory was an incredible experience for me, because it meant completely relinquishing control and trusting a complete stranger with my body. Scott is incredibly kind and thoughtful and I am honoured to now have this permanent, tangible connection with him" - Maike

No pain, no gain

Collectors in London for Frieze week might be tempted to get a tattoo while they’re in town (go out to a vernissage, get drunk, get a skin etching). Lazarides Gallery is offering some brave and reckless guinea pigs the chance to get a tattoo for free—but there’s a catch.
