These pieces are all hand poked, permanent tattoos. All have been done under the informed consent of participants.
For myself, tattoos serve as a way of reclaiming the body. Our bodies are our home, even for those who don’t like their bodies, who’s bodies don’t necessarily work very well, maybe the body has been through trauma and bears scars that remind us of times when we did not own our bodies. Through tattooing and body art, one can take that agency back. The body is our house, even if the house is broken down, falling apart, or ugly, you might as well make a house a home and decorate the walls.
