Deadline for applications 6pm on Monday 24th September
Unlimited is looking for a model to be tattooed live at the headline performance event for Manchester Science Festival on 18th October 2018. As part of Unlimited Enhancement Technologies’s festival of human enhancement, “You Have Been Upgraded”, we invite Manchester or North West based sci-art enthusiasts to apply.
One applicant will be selected to receive a free tattoo by Rebecca De Cadorette, a blackwork tattoo artist and former biologist at the University of Manchester with a particular interest in human evolution and futurology. Working out of her Long Time Dead studio in Stretford, Manchester, ‘DC’ uses her backgrounds in research, science and art to design future bodies and ritual tattoo to transform the wearer beyond the ‘normal’. This piece will be fitted to suit the body of the successful applicant: fully custom, the client will receive a blackwork, hand span sized original design.
