body, 2016

When skin is tattooed, it undergoes the medical process of granulation to heal itself. Capillary vessels form into small beads, as new connective tissue forms over the wound. As irreversible marks on the physical bodies, tattoo still remain as a taboo in Asian culture.

Starting from 2015, I began exploring with mark-makings on human bodies, permanently and impermanently, using the technique of hand-poke.
