Passing in and out of fashion -

"At the Tattoo Parlor"
montage by Mick Mather
Tattoos, piercing, scarification and branding...each a form of body art that, with each generation, is either in or out of fashion. Right now, it appears to be quite in fashion to have a tattoo or multiple piercings. Generally speaking, the more extreme body arts of branding and flesh cutting are much less acceptable but on the rise. Since I'm part of a team putting together an exhibition of "body art" where each of these forms may actually appear on living models, I suppose it was a natural thing for my subconscious to offer up an artwork that's abstractly associated with the project. It should be great fun and, if possible, I'll post some of those images here come late summer or early fall.
