Tattoo Taboo

  • Now you see it...
  • Now you don't.
  • Tattoo’s are a part of history and culture, but sometimes people make mistakes. A new form of tattoo ink is being used, to aid easy removal. This book is a dynamic typographic journey of an NPR interview discussing this new biopolymer ink for tattoos. The act of impermenance and removal discussed in content is revealed throughout the book by red acetate revealing and hiding text due to color interactions. Hand drawn lettering illustrates the colorful characters while standard text dissapears to reveal other messages about tattoos. This book recieved a silver award at the 2008 Savannah Secession Graphic Design Juried Exhibition.
