"Bless This Mess" by
Saturday, 6th AUGUST 2016
3 pm onwards

Did you know that in the 80s, if you have a tattoo, you could be killed? Did you know that during Soeharto's regime, people used to hide their tattoos for fear of being mistaken as "criminals", and made "disappear" by the regime?

Bless This Mess explores the story of tattoo and its stigma in Indonesia; a look inside the "prison tattoo" and the tattoo artists, and a survivor story from someone who "escaped" the regime's tattoo-killing operations in the 1980s in Indonesia.
