Tattoo: Totem, Taboo, Art?

Arts Monday’s Jane Raffan interviews Geoff Ostling, former history teacher, porcelain collector and wearer of a full body tattoo by tattoo artist eX de Medici.

eX de Medici is also a highly collectable fine art practitioner.

Geoff Ostling plans to donate his skin to the National Gallery of Australia.

Jane chats with Geoff about his personal journey and touches on elements of tattoo’s move into the mainstream and its journey from taboo to treasure.
