Tattoo Exhibition

Tattooing and the Modern Gladiators looked at the tattoos of mixed martial artists competing in ‘extreme fighting’ events. This was created in 2006 as an extension to the Museum of Antiquities’ popular Tattoo exhibition. The exhibition included two of the regions top international MMA athletes Dave “Speedy” Elliott and Peter Irving. Hailed as a major success in involving local people in museum work, the display allowed the exhibition to be extended by a month and was featured in the press.
