The Earthline Tattoo Collective in partnership with IOTA Institute will be hosting a public tattoo demonstration Saturday, March 9th at the Natural History Museum. The event will start at 2pm with an introduction from Dion Kaszas and will feature a hand poked tattoo demonstration done by Jordan Bennett.
The demonstration will be followed by a conversation with the cultural tattoo practitioners of Earthline Tattoo Collective: Jordan Bennett, Amy Malbeuf, Dion Kaszas and Amberley John. This event takes place one month after the new Safe Body Art Act has come into action and will be followed by a conversation and question period on health and safety practices and the creation of safe spaces when teaching traditional Indigenous tattooing.
IOTA gratefully Acknowledges the Canada Council for the Arts support for this project.
