Using the craft of tattooing as my main influence, I create work that brings this art form into the gallery space.
By recreating the space of the tattoo studio where I work, I am bringing a place steeped in meaning and learning to the white-walled gallery space. The recreation of such a sacred space to me is crucial in my work and shows a need to replicate the authenticity of the tattoo studio. In my work authenticity is crucial to the whole mood of the space. I want to transport people from a gallery to a tattoo studio.
