Beauty is not only ink deep: tattoo photoshoot with Niall Patterson

Beauty Is Not Only Ink Deep 3

Last week, I travelled to Birmingham to be part of photographer Niall Patterson‘s project Beauty Is Not Only Ink Deepa new photography idea through which Niall is attempting to capture the true beauty and individuality of the tattoos we bear.

Niall has been photographing people from all over the world in an attempt to give a voice to beautiful tattooed individuals and their stories.

Their voices are the most important aspect of the project for Niall, and so all final images are accompanied by a poignant quote that Niall gathers from chatting to each person and getting to know them.

Inkluded will be working closely with Niall and the project over the next few months to help spread the word about these stunning tattoo portraits. One of the main aims of Niall’s is to secure a book publisher for the project, and let full pages give the photos the room they deserve to shine.

Below are some of my behind the scenes photos from the day, as well as my final finished portrait images. I feel he has truly captured the spirit of my ink and the internal feelings I have towards my tattoos. Evidence that beauty is not only ink deep..
