The Tattooed Lady

I am currently collecting stories about tattoos that have become outdated declarations of love for some new work to be shown in the spring of 2015.

Your stories will go on to inspire new tattoo designs for The Tattooed Lady, a vintage fairground style dispencer.

A love tattoo could have been for another person, a band or a film star. It could have been a teenage impulse or drunken mistake, it could be about anything as long as you had a pssion for it at the time. If you have a story you would like to share you can do so anonymously HERE or add it to the project's Facebook page.

Keep an eye out to see if your story becomes a new tattoo design and thanks so much for your input!

Pre Raphaelite transgender project

My Pre Raphaelite/transgender project was recently shown in Cornerhouse as part of Cornerhouse Projects.

The work is a celebration of transgender femininty inspired by local drag/burlesque performer Grace Oni Smith and the romantic vision of Pre Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti and you can see it on display up until 9th September.

Catch up on how the project progressed on my blog HERE
