Hidden Secrets

3 04 2010

There has always been some profiling and stereotyping that goes along with people with tattoos – especially women.  This set hopefully breaks away from that a little.  I tried to show the model – Sarah, as a working professional-before you saw the tatts.    She has a brain, she goes to college, she can do most anything any other business woman can do-the only difference-she has ink. But that ink covered up, she doesn’t get the weird looks of disgust, apprehensiveness, or the automatic “come hither” looks from guys.

People have their reasons for wearing ink  and having other body modifications done. The meaning of this art is usually significant only to the wearer, but does give the rest of us some cool art to look at.
