SUMMARY :

Tattooists are considered as the source of rebellion because we are the creator of the rebellious mark.
When people are labeling us for our decorated bodies, I want to provide another way to understand our stories we carry on our backs.
In this series I drew portraits of several HK-based tattooist in the consistent illustrating style in which I use to design tattoos.
With their tattoos re-arranged as decorations surrounding their faces, hopefully people will be curious about who we are, instead of judging how we look.
