Photographer Exposes The Tattooed People

Related Articles




People who love to get tattoos come in all different shapes and sizes, which London-based photographer Alan Powdrill proves in his new "Covered photo series". The people in his series, many of whom are tattooed chin-to-toe, are all walking, breathing works of art. To drive the point home, each of Powdrill’s photos comes with a brief comment from the sitter about their history with tattoos. Some are extraordinarily late bloomers who started getting tattoos at 40 or 50, while some are life-long enthusiasts who’ve been getting tattoos since before they were of legal age. Powdrill has tons of great photos of interesting people in his portfolio! His photos will be on display in London on November 11th.
