The main purpose of this project is to explore the narrative that underpins the phenomenon that starts with the reason why someone gets tattooed, to the act of getting tattooed, and ends with how the bodies are perceived once tattooed. The decision to conduct this research was informed Selina’s own experience as a voyeur and an artist who admires tattoos and the culture behind them.
