Submissions for Exhibition of art by tattoo artists

Beyond the Tattoos

The Ottawa School of Art is very pleased to extend an invitation to all tattoo artists working in the Ottawa region to take part in a juried group exhibition of original artwork. We want to highlight the depth of talent and range of styles that tattoo artists in Ottawa have. The purpose of this show is to highlight the artistic abilities of tattoo artists when not using the human body as their canvas (We are not looking for photography of tattoos!). We want your drawings, paintings, prints, photos, sculptures, etc. – the personal and private work that usually doesn’t end up on someone’s skin!
