Exhibition to break the tattoo taboo.

CALLING all painted ladies and gentlemen.

An exhibition has opened in Leamington which aims to break taboos and challenge public perceptions surrounding tattoos.

Around 16 tattoo artists have created custom artwork on a variety of materials, rather than skin, including paper, ceramic, slate, synthetic limbs and more. One of the organisers, Beccy Rimmer, said: "At Inkluded, we're passionate about showcasing and sharing the craft of tattoo art and making information about this thriving industry available to the general public.

"There can often be media misrepresentation about what tattooing is - this exhibition aims to portray the industry in a truthful and respectful light, where tattoos are art, and tattooists are artists.

"This country's creative tattoo scene is fast-growing and flourishing with talented artists, remarkable artwork and innovative styles - we thought it was time we unveiled the creativity and originality of the UK's tattoo mastery through this multimedia exhibition."

The show, which is being held at the Deasil Art Gallery, in Oxford Street, will run until October 20. Admission is free.
