Feature on Tattooed Art Historian Matt Lodder

The gentleman in the above magazine spread is Matt Lodder. He has been getting a lot of attention in academia, not because of his tattoos, but because he is one of the few people who has been writing about tattoos from an art perspective and has first hand knowledge of the culture. Having just been awarded his doctorate for examining and challenging the role of tattoos and the tattooist in history and art, I had an interview lined up with him. For the mood and styling of the photo-session we took inspiration from 1950's police files.

Tattoo Revolution, a new non-profit tattoo lifestyle magazine, just ran this as a 5 page feature and we are both really pleased with how it came out.
