Student Narrative

I used the synthetic skin used in creating tattoo apprenticeships to showcase my personal style of tattooing. The first book is bound with body jewelry and the second is accordion bound with images tattooed as pages. I built it in the box to showcase these books and installed a tattooed fake hand into the spine to add to the effect of opening the box.
