Where do you wear art forever?
Try before you buy…
Think about art you like or make your own art, then put a transfer of it on your skin and see how it looks.
I rarely go off the art that hangs on my wall in the same fickle way I toss a pair of shoes or a skirt into my great crate of former loves (the deepest, darkest caverns of my wardrobe). This is why tattoos should never be seen as a fashion fad, don’t get a tattoo to accessorise your latest favourite outfit (unless it’s fake).
Art hangs on my wall, always loved. The same way tattoos sit on my skin. Invest in tattoos as you would in art – only get it if you love it. Until one day it becomes part of you, sometimes unnoticed, until you meet someone new and they comment (positively or otherwise). Obviously one piece of art cannot be loved by everyone, it’s subjective, but that’s the beauty of it. And as long as you love it, who cares?
All photos are taken from the beautiful book Tattoo Icons • Victionary 3 (Limited edition). This book inspires you to think about tattoos and art beyond their tradional boundaries. Think of tattoos as more than just anchors, flowers, butterflies and tribal bands and have fun and experiment with transfers to see how they change when they are put on the body.
