Exclamation Tattoo's In Society Project

I am a Photographer based in the Leicestershire area, doing a project on how Tattoos are viewed within society. I personally have 5 Tattoos at the age of 19 and I have seen a massive change in how people treat me just because I have them. I want to do this project to make society aware on how the people I photograph have got into tattoos, and they're personal beliefs on what tattoos mean to them. The dream is to make this into a photographic book that is shipped all over the UK. But to achieve this I need your help! If you have many tattoos and feel comfortable tattoos, I need you to reach out to me at booking a photoshoot, completely free of charge, at the shoot I will get you to fill out a questionnaire and model release to help me answer questions in my book.

Email me if you are interested at jordan@jordanellisphotography.co.uk

Normally I get all shouty about these things but I can't be bothered anymore. Mr Deano Ellis I am happy to help you out if you can show me some examples of your work.

Thanks

Just a personal question, whereabouts on your body are these 5 tattoos? You say people treat you massively differently, I'm just trying to figure out why?

We had a photographer in work last week to take some photos for a new company brochure. I was quite surprised to be asked to be in some of the shots working on the machines (I have 2 full sleeves and the company uniform is a t shirt). But surprise surprise, when a proof copy of the new brochure got emailed to us, I wasn't in any of the photos that made the final brochure. Was it because the shots weren't any use or was it because I'm tattooed? I don't know. The company is pretty relaxed and there is no policy of having to cover up, but it would seem that they don't want a tattooed person being in any official company publication.

I would be happy to help but none of my four tattoos are visible even in shorts and tshirt so not sure how useful I would be! I find I get more reaction from a close shaven head than my tattoos to be honest!

Haha! Yeah, just made me wonder. Generally its only shocking or visible tattoos that cause people to have any kind of reaction to you...unless they are super touchy or conservative! I agree with the shaven head thing too - 150 hours of tattooing and people seem much more intimidated by a tall skinhead than any tattoos...
