Jessie's Tattoo Club


Two days of R&D at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre as a part of their Ferment Fortnight.  With Gaggle Babble we explored the tumultuous life of Jessie Knight, the first prominent female tattoo artist in Britain, through Gig Theatre.  My role was to polish the overall look of the band and assist with staging and dressing the space.  I designed flyers that littered the theatre as if it was a gig, mementos for the audience to take away with them, and replicated Jessie's hand drawn shop signs that punctuated the stage.  Rugs covered the floor like in a recording studio and added a splash of colour.
