About

KTLA 5 News report on the campaign by David Mecham: http://ktla.com/2015/01/13/l-a-artist-offers-to-tattoo-anyones-name-on-her-body-for-10/

*** UPDATE***I am overwhelmed with support from you guys wanting this unique piece of artwork! We are at about 800 names and the  goal is to get at least 2500 (to cover everywhere, approx. 1250 pledgers - all extra money will be put into creating this work.

I want to be a singular tattoo for my latest art exhibition, and I want it to be your names. This is going to be an art exhibition in LA featuring my body and your names. I think the tattoo on my forehead says it best 'Life is art'. There is something absurd & beautiful about having an accumulation of absolute strangers names draped over my pale goth skin, even if half of them are 'Penis Butt'. Why? you might ask, simply because I can, I know what I'm about son, and I am my own ultimate canvas. Like my art exhibitions and murals this is a social and artistic experiment! Each persons name to me represents YOU the main protagonist in your own story. I will be covered in a hundred tiny stories.

Everyone who pledges I'm going to get your names tattooed whether the campaign is funded or not  x

Each name/s tattoo or design will be featured on my Facebook page, to clarify the name does not have to be yours, in fact it can be any one to two words you want (even penis)... and yes, I have also considered that this could mean my whole body is covered in names, at 6ft I am prepared to be covered in names from toe to ass, stomach to head if I have to.

During the process it will be filmed... not by my crappy camera, and regular updates about the exhibition that will be held somewhere in Los Angeles and  the conclusion of each tattoo will be added to my Facebook page www.facebook.com/tomfoolery.art, each person who designs a tattoo will be tagged with their piece on my hot bod. I chose 6K because talking to the shop I go to regularly, we estimate about 60 hours of work, plus gallery exhibition costs, As soon as this campaign is over we will begin!

I'm going to force my friend to edit and film a bad ass vid for youtube from start to finish! Including a photo-shoot of the before and afters that will be presented in the form of an exhibition. 

All the red areas mark where your names will be!

Risks and challenges

Only possible risks would be booking set backs and tattoo progress, it might take longer than anticipated but will be fulfilled. Also running out of room on my skin but we have estimated amount of names, depending on popularity we will limit where necessary & make sure every reward is fulfilled. - Also I would love to get the tattoo finished during the exihibtions opening night, fingers crossed!
