“Ink Stories”: Intoxicating Photos of Remarkable Women and Their Tattoos by Reka Nyari

Body art is, when you get down to it, a form of storytelling — each piece of ink contributes to a narrative that can encompass a single tattoo, or an entire body. Photographer Reka Nyari explores and subverts traditional ideas of beauty and gender, recontextualizing the aesthetics of sexuality through a female gaze; her “Ink Stories” continues that work via a series of sometimes pointed, sometimes erotic, and always fascinating images of tattooed women and the stories they tell with their bodies.
