Program description

BA (Hons) Body Art

Explore the use of the human body as both a canvas and a medium within the field of art on this fascinating body art degree. You'll be equipped with a broad range of artistic skills for the creative industries.

This course does not only concentrate on tattooing, but also explores the anthropological rationale of body art in different cultures, and how this fast-growing area is becoming a global phenomenon. You’ll also research sociology and art, helping you to become a forward-thinking practitioner with a firm grasp of the history behind body art.

Admission requirements

This course is ideally suited to students who have a keen interest in the human body as a canvas, or medium, for their artistic output.

It is a course that will provide students with not only a chance to hone and refine their practical and creative skills, but one that immerses the student in the theory and cultural history that informs these skills.

Applicants should have previously studied a creative subject and have a portfolio of design work to show at interview.
