When I started my ONE PERSON STUDIO – Real Faces of Tattoo project I wasn’t 100 % sure about the concept. I knew I wanted to photograph tattooists. I had some idea how I’d like the background to look, how to set up the lights. I knew that I wanted to portray them the way they are. The way I see them. The way they are to me, as it is always one’s interpretation of the person whose portrait is taken.
But what is interesting for me is how this project is evolving, how I change the light, backgrounds.
Firstly I wanted background to be neutral black but now I let it to be different but not crowded, not overpowering.
I want it to be background, simple. But now I experiment with light and by changing angles I had to change the postproduction process. Hope you like the new images and that they will be good addition to the portraits I shot so far.
Studio in Richmond is the first studio where I changed my standard setting and I think it was worth it. Changes are always good :)

DUNCAN X
I knew when I started a “REAL FACES OF TATTOO” project, that during the process I would meet some amazing people. I also knew that most of the artists’ work would be inspiring to many. Some of us are inspired so much that we even decide to let them put ink under our skin, for life.
But I knew that not only is their work inspiring, but artists themselves are source of inspiration for many including me. I’m so glad that they let me portray them.
I’d like to share with you ‘A film directing first from Alex Nicholson, this dark short film features Duncan X, a tattooist from South London reminiscing about his life and work.’ This tattooist was one of the first artists portrayed in my project.
