OK, so you've been pointed here either by myself, or by word of mouth, to look at what I'm about to embark on.

The basis of the project is to photograph your tattoo(s) and have you write about the meaning of them.  We see many people with all sorts of tattoos, but do you ever wonder what they mean?  I'm sure many of us do, so here is your chance to tell your own story...

So what do I need?

  • to take photos of whatever tattoos you have on your body, that you are willing to show,

  • in a setting that is comfortable and meaningful to you personally - it won't be a formal photoshoot,

  • and finally some words from you, your name, and the age you were when first tattooed, how your tattoo makes you feel, its story, its raison d'etre, etc.

An example of potential layout is shown below.

Please contact me here, with any questions you may have.

I look forward to working with you on this exciting project  :)

Poison Ivy ~ a dedication to my wife’s first latex dress, which was outgrown after her boob-job.  Within Victorian Floriography, the ivy gives us love and affection whilst forget-me-nots give true love, faithfulness, remembrance; these serve a double meaning to both my relationship to my wife, and also to that dress, that made such an impression on us.
