The Tattoo Project

Published April 26 2022, 06:55

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.
