The artists at Chaos Crew Tattoo Studio have made an entire poster to showcase 2011 as tattoo history. Taking inspiration from the idea that every tattoo tells a story, the German tattoo studio has created a masterpiece tattoo poster, which incorporates images of the most news-worthy events of 2011.

The poster is done on calf-skin to stay true to the tattooing medium. Chaos Crew’s work is a testament to showing tattooing as a high form of art. Not only is the skill of the artists an impressive feat, the deeper realization that history, like tattoos, are a permanent mark on collective memory is a very philosophic and insightful commentary on human history.

The making of this tattoo history can be observed in an entertaining minute and a half video that shows each of the news stories with audio of the news headline it corresponds to. The Munich-based studio is sure to get worldwide attention for their depiction of history.
