Tiny Tattoos, Austin Tott
American photographer Austin Tott has captured a series of images that match miniature, hand-drawn body art to backgrounds from which they draw visual reference. Tiny tattoos are outlined onto the surface of a wrist, penned on the skin in black ink.
Illustrating small-scale bicycles, little trees and envelopes onto the arm, Tott then holds up the hand amongst various landscapes, sets and scenes, which thematically parallel each drawing.
"It’s been life-changing. From the mad things you do while making it, to the experiences you get from traveling around the world promoting it. The Americans love it, which is fabulous. I love that it’s so quintessentially British, yet so globally huge. The scene of me on the back of a motorbike with The Doctor, driving past Big Ben - I’ve never felt more British in my life!" — Jenna Coleman for Glamour UK (June 2014) [x]
