Current Work


Tattoo is a lockdown storytelling project from The Outsiders Project, run in association with Hampstead Theatre. Its mission is simple. One photo of a tattoo. One story of the tattoo.

During this period of isolation, we are actively seeking voices not traditionally represented in the mainstream.

Participants can either write their own story and submit alongside a photo, or if they prefer they can speak to one of the project’s organisers and have their story transcribed over the phone. Contributors will get final approval on all stories before they are showcased on the project website.

To see the stories collected so far, and to find out more about sending in your own submission, visit
