One thing that Andrey Lukovnikov’s colorful tattoos might remind you of are clipping masks from Adobe Photoshop. The combination of bold, busy imagery with a crisp edge mimics digital imagery—as if these bugs, birds, and feathers are concealing a larger part of an overall picture. And if you watch some of Lukonikov’s videos, it’s clear that this type of media influences his body art. Entire sketches and paintings are created on the computer. Although it’s a challenge to replicate this precise pixelation on something soft as the skin, Lukovnikov achieves the clean outlines that for which digital work is known. Continue reading »

Berlin-based artist Sebastian Bieniek unfolds the story of a two-faced female in his series of photographs “doublefaced”. Using an eye pencil and lipstick, bieniek simply draws an image of a face onto the side of skin.

This combination of two images taken on Thursday, January 15, 2015, shows Pakistani Riasat Hussain, 19, posing for a picture at a friend’s place in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Across conservative Pakistan, where Islamic extremists launch near-daily attacks and many follow a strict interpretation of their Muslim faith, male cross-dressers and the transgendered face a challenge of balancing two identities.
