Queer tattooing: What does it mean?

8 July, 2022|11:15 - 13:00

Welcome to a lecture and conversation about Queer tattooing at Malmö Pride! Nikki Sullivan will give a live online lecture from Australia, followed by a conversation between Pia Laskar and Sara Swanson on searching for and writing queer history.

What does it mean to find the words ‘queerʼ and ‘tattoo(ing)ʼ conjoined? Is this a phrase that is used simply to denote the fact that particular artists, studios, patrons, or

designs are queer? Or does it mean that tattoos and tattooing are somehow inherently queer, or, have become so as of late? What has the relationship between queer

identity and/or practice and tattoos and tattooing been historically and in specific geographic contexts? How have such identities and practices intersected with other

forms of body modification and expressions of style? Is queer tattooing political, aesthetic, performative, ethical, reclamatory, consumerist, spiritual, a mode of belonging?

Who gets to decide, and how? Nikki Sullivans presentation will explore these and other questions that the bringing together of our two wor(l)ds invokes.


The program is a collaboration between StaDemonia Tattoo Stockholm and Malmö Pride and part of our project about Queer Tattooing where we arrange conversations

about art, tattooing, and invite lgtbqi+ artists as guest tattooers and sharing experiences.

Medverkande: Nikki Sullivan, Pia Lasker and Sara Swanson
