Bright and bold tattoo tales

Unfortunately the season of This Is Permanent has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconvenience.

West Australian
World Premiere

Tattoo parlours: a nexus of pleasure and pain, the sacred meets the profane, and private experiences are transformed into permanent works of art. This is a show about tattoos, but not as you have ever experienced them.

Created by emerging theatre maker Dore Khan, This is Permanent draws from eight true stories from tattooed women, and the impact that their ink has had on their lives. It is an ode to the tattooed female form and the struggles of being a woman in a society built on body shaming. This is Permanent explores the transformative and often healing power of tattoos.

Part poetry, part history lesson, and part show and tell, see how an ancient art form has become part of modern, feminist rebellion.

As part of Summer Nights at FRINGE WORLD 2020.
