In recent years he has been working on a series called ‘Ink Stories’, which depicts fully tattooed women from all over the world telling life stories drawn on their skin.

I have always loved making portraits and have become interested in the art of tattooing.
Tattoos are such a beautiful, definitive, artistic and rebellious way of reclaiming one’s body, often functioning as therapy to transform a person’s life and appearance.
They can be emblems of strength, reminders of courage and guides to a better path in life.

All the tattoos are real and each work tells the intimate and real stories of the women portrayed.
Each one is the heroine of a story of self-emancipation, reconciliation with their traumas, a story told on their skin.

From this perspective, tattoos become symbols of vigour and triumph, symbols of how they transformed their minds by transforming their skin.
