Alan Powdrill; Covered:

Covered is the name of Alan Powdrill’s new photo series. The london based photographer is trying to show tattooed people as they are, completely. By first showing them in their day to day outfits and then showing them bearing all to show their tattoos.
It is an awesome photo series, reminiscent of a book we reviewed on our site last year, called London Tattoo. Where the same concept was the purpose.

Alan has also done all he can, to showcase how much thought goes into tattoos. By having a comment accompany each persons photos, explaining their tattoo story and why they have their collection. However, there is one cool difference, the people in Alan’s photo series, are all extremely tattooed. There is not one person, who would not categorize as heavily tattooed.

In that respect, it may succeed even better than the book did, in showing off the diversity, even among the most avid of tattoo collectors. We have people of all ages and walks of life, all telling their story and showing off their beautiful collections. All in order to fight the stigmas that can still linger at times, in our modern society.

Final Comments:

For more, please go see his website All of his photos are truly extraordinary, in how they showcase the people, in mundane scenery, perhaps it is where they live. Taking some of the glam one may usually see in a photoseries away, in order to bring people the true nature of tattooed people. That they are just like the rest of society, when it all comes down to it. You owe yourself a look at this awesome photo series!
