There is no rest for the wicked and sometimes my creative brain makes me do things when I don’t seem to have the time…..but alas, a new project is underway. After the success of the gallery exhibit @ Aardvark, I decided that I wanted to do something similar, but yet different.
So I have decided to shoot tattoos and tell their stories. I know each of my tattoos has a reason why it is permanently etched into my skin. My tattoos are in some way a reflection of me and how I feel – how I was loved and will be loved. I have three tribute pieces to my parents and a big one for my children. I wear them with pride. I have always admired great pieces of art and now I am about to embark on a journey of capturing other people’s stories and artwork.
I want to publish a book with these stories and tattoos – I have posted a casting call on facebook and to my astonishment, within two days I had over 30 people interested…the studio is going to be a busy place.
I will keep updating while shooting and sharing this wonderful journey.
