Cheyenne Tattoo Equipment & Travelin‘ Mick present the Cheyenne World of Tattoo Living Gallery
Tracing the world of tattooing through history and culture, curated and presented by tattoo historian and photographer Travelin‘ Mick.
Featuring three top traditional tattoo artists from Denmark, Japan and Polynesia, handtapping live at the Krakow Tattoofest.
Tattooing is by no means a modern trend, but rather an ancient tradition, common to all of mankind. The Cheyenne World of Tattoo Living Gallery is presenting the historic and cultural aspects of traditional tattooing in all its variety. From the plains of ancient Siberia, through the jungles of Borneo, the beaches of the Pacific Isles, the savannahs of Africa into the most remote corners of China, men and women have marked themselves to be a part of their tribe, their beliefs, their people. Some of these cultures have long gone, as seen on the Altai mummies that were buried under ice millennia ago; others are still the same as they were in ancient times.
The Cheyenne World of Tattoo Gallery is displaying a variety of Travelin‘ Mick‘s photographs, taken on five continents on his travels, a variety of historic illustrations, books and authentic artefacts, painting an image of tattooing as a truly human heritage.
Highlighting the World of Tattoo Living Gallery are our three special guests, who are showing their skills and knowledge about their very own tattoo traditions, executed by hand:
Kai-Uwe Faust from Copenhagen, Denmark: Nordic and Viking Handpoking
Toshihide from Japan: Tebori Technique
Brent McCown from New Zealand: Pacific Tatau
Those three masters will tattoo live at the Tattoofest and present the audience with a unique view of how tattooing has been done for thousands of years all over the world.
