Altered flesh: A self-narrative through tattoos

Information

My work explores traditional tattoo design, specifically the conventions of traditional tattoo flash sheets. The works focus on how images influence one another when placed within the context of a collection. The images explore how tattoos can construct an external identity and enable the development of a sense of self. I reference my own position to tattoo culture through my images and self-portraits.
My work primarily sits within the context of drawing and painting. I create works inspired by traditional American tattoo culture and aspire to enter the tattoo industry once graduating from Massey.
