DESCRIPTION:  Tracey Emin's intimately scaled 'Tattoo' in two parts - one features Polaroid snapshots of Tracey's various tattoos whilst the other features handwritten text of Tracey bemoaning the fact that she ever had them done in the first place. The work combines photography and text to reveal an insight into the tattoos that adorn the artist's body. Self-referential, 'Tattoo' has the highly personal, diaristic quality that typifies Emin's work, from large-scale installations such as 'My Bed' to her smaller, intimate monoprints and photographic pieces.
