SIGNUM | Tattoo Museum

For my bachelor project I designed a fictional tattoo museum with an integrated bar and a tattoo studio. The idea was to present tattooing and it’s culture in a contemporary way. The integration of the bar and the studio should work as a platform for young tattoo artists and connect the knowledge and the craft. To attract both people who are into tattoos and also people who are only interested in the cultural aspect, the museum is divided in different areas which are arranged in concentric circles. Theses four main areas do represent the tattoo-culture of their geographical points. If you switch to the inner circle you can experience what developed out of these different cultures until recently. In the core you will find the the bar, the temporary exhibition and the tattoo studio.
