About this Event
Following the concept of collective care, during a 2 hour workshop, participants will learn how to safely perform a tattoo, going through the basics of hand-poke tattooing, while having a conversation about how tattoos can be a powerful means of body reclamation and a way of processing grief or trauma. Participants will be given all the supplies needed to perform a tattoo and will proceed to tattoo fruit skin, walking together through every step of the process. Once our tattoos are finished, we will peel each fruit and put all the skin together to create a collective piece.
