Seeking Tattooed or Peirced Individuals for Photography Project!

By DanielSpellman - 13 April 2011 13

Hi there. My name is Daniel Spellman, a 3rd year photography student at the ANU.

As part ouf our assessment this semester, we are exploring documentery photography. I have chosen to explore tattoos and body modification and the people behind them, in Canberra. As part of this project I am bringing tattooed or peircing indivduals into the lighting studio and taking their portraits. Like this one: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/22483367

If you have any or know of someone who does, please consider participating in the project! The best 10-20 photos will be sent to you via email or on a disc. You may also end up in a book published using blurb.com.

If you have tattoos or peircings, please hit me up! They dont have to be big or crazy – I am looking for a range of different kinds. My email is dnmn_@msn.com. Or comment with how you’d like to be contacted.

We will arrange a booking for the lighting studio at the ANU School of Art, in between Ellery Cres and Childers St. It’s near Civic. You can wear whatever you want.

I’d also love to have models also type a short statement about what their tattoos mean to them/why they got them – but this is optional. If you’d rather not write anything, I’d still be happy to shoot you.

Thankyou! Get in touch!

-Dan S

Hi Dan,
Would love to help out! I have quite a lot of tattoos from text to flowers and birds.
If you’re still looking for people, please don’t hesitate to email me (liz.hollands@gmail.com). I can send you some pics, if necessary. 🙂
Cheers,
Liz

There is a local BDSM group who hold a photo shoot every couple of months. They are friendly. Sounds like what you are after. Fetlife

Oh fgzk. Laughing my fetlife ass off.

Howdy Dan,

I’m reasonably heavily pierced (18 between my ears, face and neck) with some extremely uncommon work done and am very interested in helping you out with this project.
Shoot me a line at timmy180691@hotmail.com

Cheers,
Timmy.

Hey mate,

I’ve got a couple of tattoo’s from Thailand (and some fairly embarrassing ones, also from Thailand). I’d be happy to help out. Just shoot me an email at forresttom@me.com

Cheers
Tom

Just go into JB HiFi or WOW and ask any of the employees to pose.

Dan,
Please note that the spelling is piercing, not peircing.

There’s a better one at Aust Post in Civic. She would be fantastic.

There’s an amazing pierced tatted employee behind the counter at Australia Post Dickson. He would make a great subject …

Is there a time frame people need to contact you by? I only have a couple of small piercings, but I will pass this on to people I know with more body modifications than me 🙂

Oh good question… haha. Well I’d say the end of May at the latest, as I need to start finalising the project for assessment by then
