The conversation looks to examine body art as a living tradition, and will unpack the changing nature of contemporary tattoo culture in India, from a subversive act to a socially acceptable form of expression. In addition, this discussion looks at the cultural representation and appropriation of tribal/folk motifs, designs and patterns in the mainstream tattoo culture. 

This session features Moranngam Khaling  (the founder of Headhunters Ink and Godna Gram – The Tatoo Village), Viren Swami (Professor of Social Psychology,Anglia Ruskin University) and Sanjukta Basu (photographer of the Women with Tattoos series) in conversation with Prachi Gupta (Archivist at MAP, Bangalore)
