Skins@ Magnum Opus Tattoos

Magnum Opus Tattoos in Brighton is holding an exhibition of photos from Gavin Watson's book 'SKINS'.

"Around 40 images will be on show, including iconic photos of Gavin's younger brother Nev, who aged 10 years-old was a member of the High Wycombe Skins. First published in 1994, Gavin's book documents his mates and these extraordinary photos are an accurate insight into one of the most mis-represented subcultures ever to emerge in the UK. September 2007 saw a revised edition of the book, with several more photos included from Gavin's archive and an exhibition at the Dr Marten's flagship store in Covent Garden."
