My senior exhibition was about how fine art is confined to a box... literally a box. they call them galleries.
and i’m not trying to say that they should put tattoos in galleries, but tattooing has a rightful place in the fine art world. a tattoo is at it’s full beauty and power when it lives on a person, travels with them across the world, and dies with them. a single tattoo is not meant to impact the world, but each one impacts the world of the person who wears it. their history is vast- culture strong- and prestige ignored.
