I shot this series for an assignment I completed for my photography course. The brief was to shoot a documentary style photo essay on something that interested me.

These were captured in my friend Teneile Napoli’s beautiful, almost whimsical tattoo shop Garage Ink in Brisbane, Australia one afternoon last year, with her permission of course. At this point in time there were only female artists working and I really wanted the shots to represent the beauty of not only the artists and their works but their surroundings as well.
