Directed by Ryan Hope, Skin is a dark, stylish examination of tattoo culture as high art, and a film that tests the boundaries of art and the human body.
Featuring contributions from Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons and Raymond Pettibon, the film is a beautiful visual essay from the frontiers of contemporary British art.
Skin was made in association with Garage Magazine to mark the launch issue, and was made possible by the generosity of Christie’s, the world’s leading art business, and W Hotels.
