The Leu Family is world famous in the tattoo scene and Felix Leu, Tinguely’s stepson from his first marriage, is an icon in the world of body art.

Leu Art Family. Caresser la peau du ciel

The Leu family is well-known among tattoo fans worldwide. In the late 1960s and 1970s, Felix and Loretta Leu used their tattooing skills to fund extensive travels with their four children Ama, Aia, Filip and Ajja. These years on the road were nourished by artistic curiosity, forming the basis for a distinct family cosmos. Featuring works by all members of the family, the exhibition offers a picture of this special universe.
