Alex Binnie and Duncan X
A new tattoo underground has emerged in recently years and their cutting-edge visuals go far beyond the tattoo mainstream. Visual artist Alex Binnie is a legend within the international tattoo scene and his Into You studio that he’s been running for 19 years in East London continues to foster countless talents and innovators including Curly, Thomas Hooper, Nick Schonberger and Duncan X to name but a few—all featured in Gestalten’s new Forever: The New Tattoo book. We met Duncan and Alex in London to talk about the current mass appeal of tattoos, its uniqueness as an art form and the ”holy trinity“ of tattooing styles.
Don’t miss our Forever release event at Gestalten Space on September 22 (18:30–21:30) for an evening of talks by renowned tattoo artists Alex Binnie and Duncan X, as well as by heavily tattooed art historian Matt Lodder, author of the book’s preface and a tattooing session by Rafel Delalande.
For those of you who want to get inked by Delalande, he’s designed a special tattoo motif especially for this event!! We will also have a selection of limited edition woodcut prints by Alex Binnie along with the artist’s The Woodcut Portraits book for sale as well as special edition prints by Jon John and Rafel Delalande.
