The Tattoo Project
The Tattoo Project is an interdisciplinary project that has several objectives:
- To provide a repository for commemorative tattoos, for the public to upload their commemorative tattoos and contextualizing narratives, empowering users to make the project a social tool of their own;
- To serve as a cultural heritage site, acknowledging important memories and sharing them publicly;
- To provide scholars with a digital database of commemorative tattoos and narratives for analysis;
- To develop relationships between academics and the public.
The project website can be found here.
The PiET lab’s involvement in this project focuses on aspects of human-computer interaction in technologically-mediated commemorative tattoo practices.
