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.
