A bit of fun for today! :) A bit of an observation of the way tattoos have gone from something “edgy” and “out on a limb”, to something fashionable and increasingly commonplace – often, even “off the rack” and unoriginal. In a world where people go to extreme lengths to individualise and distinguish themselves, doing so is, somewhat ironically, creating merely another way to be “usual”, and forcing ever greater extremes to achieve the desired individuality.

BTW, I have nothing against tats, I like them and have one myself – in fact, I was going to incorporate my own tattoo in this piece but it just didn’t look right. It was merely an observation of how commonplace they are now – even utterly boring “normal” people like me are getting them these days!!! :))

This image was created using a photo (self portrait) taken on my Canon Powershot A480 and combined with a roller ball drawing for the tattoo, plus a photo of a clothes hanger.

Proudly New Zealand-made. :)
