Tattoos, over the time, have become an expression of one’s innate feelings. Tattoo making or Body art as it is called now, had its origin in tribal ritualistic practices in different nomadic and settled tribes around the world. From its humble origins to the modern day’s sophistications that it has achieved, body art still remains a medium to express oneself using its body as a canvas.
Just like art is limitless…There are various kinds of tattoos people like getting inked with. History of women and tattoos dates back to centuries and were worn as custom couture. Mother of Winston Churchill had a serpent on her wrist. Margot Mifflin in her fascinating excursion of tattoos, “Bodies of Subversion”, lays in front of us some jaw-dropping facts and pictures from the Victorian Era and before, which inspired me and it felt empowering to create something irreversible and visible, and not to be afraid of what others think.
