Tattoo Project: Body.Art.Image.

My fascination with the contrast of ink on skin and the stories people tell with their bodies started with my participation in the Tattoo Project.

Twelve photographers, over one hundred ‘models’, three and a half days, a film crew and one incredible experience!  Vince Hemingson of Vanishing Tattoo organized this weekend celebration of ink and art, body and image, connecting photographers with tattooed people to create art.

Culminating in an gallery show complete with tattooed burlesque dancers and a live dj! Curator Penny Lane is oversaw the layout and image selection of the recently released book, Tattoo Project: Body. Art. Image. and the documentary video clips are here.
