Tattooing, a category of body modification, is a popular artistic form of both aesthetic value and self-expression. ‘Beyond the Surface’ focuses on unravelling the narrative behind tattoos and understanding their relationship to self-identification.
It looks beyond what our eye see engraved on the surface of skin to better understand the undisclosed narratives and underlying meaning which unravel different interpretations and perspectives.
This has been tackled through the creation of an interactive installation. It encourage the viewers to look past their own formed opinions while grasping the notion that tattoos hold deeper motives beyond aesthetics or trends in contemporary society.
