East End Lights this Thursday!

Posted on August 25 2009

Tattoo Deluxe at East End Lights, Thursday 27th August, 2009 at our Cheshire Street store Tattoo art gets turned on its head at Beyond Retro this summer. The spectacular East End series continues with a dazzling expose of a culture that is too often misrepresented. Tattoo Lords (and Ladies!) drawn from some of London's most notorious bespoke parlours and independent inkers, line up to provide popular inspiration and entertainment. The distinct exterior lightboxes will house individual art inventions that displace traditional readings of tattoo art. Instead, we have Simon Erl detailing death, beauty and rock 'n' roll, Mo Coppoletta from The Family Business subverting kitsch iconography. Then, get ready for the fashion spin. Couture designer, Ian Frazer Wallace, creates custom corsets donning impressive images, like the beguiling Polly. Pin up girl, muse and anti-heroine with a high octane kick. History is looming, but the dark, macabre associations are replaced by something far more illuminating.
