A tattoo is the wearers chance to tell their story, or part of it, in a permanent way. Sometimes it is on view, and sometimes not.  The tattoos here all have a story to tell, of expression, the need to be heard, individualism versus conformity, and in some cases it is all of these things plus a cosmetic response to scars that tell their own story, of identity and the wearers own struggle with it.  Large format colour film self developed and scanned.
