MetamorphosisMETAMORPHOSIS is a collaboration between the photographer and the artist to highlight the amazing talent that tattoo artists possess. It's also about changing perceptions of stereotypes; changing ideas. For too long the tattoo artist has been ignored by the mainstream art world. The tattoo artist is seen to inhabit a twilight world of criminality and the underclass, but these artists are true masters of their craft and talented artists in their own right. The original premise is to take a photograph, give it to the tattoo artist and allow them to draw over the image in his or her own style. This should represent the technique of tattooing they would normally create, allowing the portrait to show through the work.
