Watsun Atkinsun; Showing People In a New Light:

Watsun Atkinsun is a tattoo artist on a mission. It is not through his tattooing that he works on this mission, however it is related to it. He takes photographs of beautiful people and adds tattoos to them. Not just a few tattoos, full bodysuits, from face to toe-tips, so to speak.

It is in an art series he calls his “Transformations Series”. He hopes that showing off these individuals, transformed by beautiful tribal tattoos. Will help enlighten the world to what tattoos really are. The fact that they do not change people, only their appearance. As well as the fact that it is a beautiful art-form, which is used for self-expression more than anything in today’s society. As well, for Atkinsun, as they show a more spiritually aware and connected alternate reality.

No matter what, he certainly shows an alternate reality. In which the world has been made more beautiful, through extensive tattooing. Hopefully, his ongoing project will provoke people who witness it, to think more about how they treat tattooed people. As well as provoke society, to rethink how they see tattoos.

Final Comment:

Through his interesting art, showing people with all sorts of tribalistic tattoos, Watsun puts a new perspective on “extreme tattooing”. Showing off an inherent beauty in it, but also showing how people, are still the same even with facial tattoos and bodysuits. Showing how tattoos can be art, while they are part of a persons body.
