High-Speed Photographs of Ink Mixing With Oil by Alberto Seveso

Dropping, is the natural evolving of my previous projects using ink and water. This time I tried something different using the oil instead the water and the outcome was amazing! The title is very important to me, because it is a tribute to the master of the dripping technique, Jackson Pollock. I always was a big fan of the chaos theory. – Alberto Seveso

Tattoo Photography by Brian Cummings

Photographer Brian Cummings started photographing tattoos when one of his hair and makeup stylist asked him to take photos of tattoos all over her body. He shot her in the Rembrandt style. He liked it and decided to do a series, photographing about a dozen people over six months.

According to Cummings, photographing tattoos is a challenge. The skin is not a flat surface so there are highlights and shadows. And in the case of imperfections, the editing process should be very careful so as not to disrupt the tattoo’s sheen.

Although he’s very skilled in shooting tattoos, he himself is not inked and has no personal experience in the subject. Cummings was glad when he didn’t do it when his friends were getting them, because he would have some awful barbed wire in his arm.
