Melbourne Tattoo Academy




Melbourne, VIC


Submitted: 2016

The concept started with word mapping on paper and developed into a finished project within about 6weeks with a couple of long nights! Our concept was centered around the notion of skin being a breathable, light, delicate and permeable membrane. We wanted to achieve a lightness to the building. We wanted the building to become part of the landscape. Our building was designed to break down stigmas associated with the tattoo industry by bringing onlookers in direct visible contact with the tattooist in action.
