Photos on Skin

Dave & his tattoo2 - by Felicia RupertiAfter I gave a talk in Oxford’s Natural History Museum, Dave Dellatore introduced himself to me and showed me a tattoo of one of my photographs on his back. Dave was studying primate conservation at Oxford Brookes University and he is a committed conservationist.  I was amazed and flattered. I always ‘back up’ my digital images, but this gave a new meaning to the expression. My pictures have been printed on fine art paper, canvas, roller blinds, jigsaw puzzles, but human skin was a first. Compare the images. Photo of Dave by Felicia Ruperti.
