The money being raised is to help me launch my first solo art perfomance show in America -  Human Canvas - An exploration into our physical image. 

I am a street and performance artist by the name of Illma Gore, I am creating a piece of permanent artwork on my body that is inspired by you. This is a statement of freedom from the conformity of expectations on my body.  I want your names and inspiration to be the subject matter of this artwork I am permantly displaying over my entire body forever. Yes! Head to toe. An original artwork that can never be re-made or sold, made up of 3,000 peoples stories.

All words welcome no restrictions, good, bad, and the ugly.

photographic print sent your way and a sketch of what I think you'd look like as a ham person
**ALL DONATION GO TOWARDS THE PRODUCTION OF THE EXHIBTION & DOCUMENTARY**

Every 10 years once the piece is complete I will hold an exhibition so you can watch as the piece grows, changes, and eventually withers away.

Thanks for your support.

It all started here. Nine months ago, I came to GoFundMe after raising an astronomically successful campaign on Kickstarter only to be kicked off with no explanation. Despite everything including peoples doubts with a concept and a dream we’ve broken the record for a crowdfunded art piece, and the most names ever tattooed on a persons body, We've raised over 17k to help with the production of my work, and I have sat in a coffee store absolutely in awe of every one of your stories!

The next phase of this take-off is completing the tattoo process which admittedly has taken far longer than expected due to the sheer amount of people involved, at first I thought I would only have enough people involved to cover my leg! So please go like my Facebook page for all updates this link ( www.facebook.com/tomfoolery.art) if you’d like company news, tattoo updates, and artwork every other week, we have also been streaming the tattoo process on my Periscope which can be found if you search 'Illma Gore'. The first emails were sent out within the last week, featuring your update and the status of progression towards your inspired artwork and if it has been tattooed or when it is projected to be. We’ll also have new revamped website coming soon, so keep an eye out for that!


As a result of this shift, you can expect more and updates, It’s likely I’ll only update you here with news specific to the campaign itself.

Thanks again for your support. We hope you’ll enjoy being my pen pal!

I absolutely adore hearing your stories and intend on making a book of all of them. Please if you have any questions or just want to chat email me at tattoomecampaign@gmail.com - emailing over 2,000 people is not easy but well worth my time.

Thank you all again.

Hey

just confirming your tattoo requests and giving you a heads up on the process.
25% of the tattooing is complete, you will emailed your picture of your tattoo when the tattoo is completely finished, September is the exhibition date in Los Angeles.

Please understand that this is an art piece so photos are kept to a minimum but if you have any questions I’ll answer them as soon as I can.

I would love for you to be apart of the documentary, and to come visit and show you your tattoo! Please share your stories with me via youtube or film a short message through your mobile and email to tattoomecampaign@gmail.com

Thanks again for all of your words and support

Love & light

Illma

I love your work. My son died in 2006. He was 4 months from his 30th birthday. He had beautiful tattoos, and I did not get photos of them. I've looked through all of the photos, but the pics don't show his beautiful tattoos. I would love it if you would tattoo his name, Nathan Peebles.
