TAT TOO. Krijn van Noordwijk
Mankind can be roughly divided into two groups: those who have tattoos and those who don’t. The latter group considers getting a tattoo an act of stupidity – done on impulse, during inebriation, out of lust, rebelliousness or simply intended to dare or impress others. The first group (which is on the rise) consist of those who’ve had one – or several – placed. Often with pride and often with a reason.
Photographer Krijn van Noordwijk (1958) has been fascinated by the latter group for years. TAT TOO is a photographic homage to tattooed man. In an idiosyncratic, daring and sometimes hilarious way – but always respectful. As an extra, most of the portrayed people tell their own personal stories behind their tattoos.
Between 20 September and 7 December 2014 Krijn van Noordwijk shows a selection of his tattoo photographs at the Limburgs Museum in Venlo.
