Perpetual Exchange

The one I want to share with you is a gesture of eternal friendship. The tattoo is a symbol of the continual exchange that feeds a relationship. I give something and I receive something back. And that feeling keeps living inside me forever. The tattoo is a ritual. doing it handpoke is much more ritual than with the machine. During the tattoo the only sound are the voices of the two people. The breath is like a prayer and in that moment the exchange of feelings and stories begins. Both the artist and the "client" receive something that will always live inside them.
