    They're lovely aren't they! I'd not seen most of those shots before, there are a few more here The Jealous Curator /// curated contemporary art /// jessica harrison but unfortunately nothing to be found on the artists site.

    I'm not sure I agree with the 'alternative way of viewing the female body' part, but they ARE gorgeous. I want one!

    Some of these are gorgeous - love the last one with her foot slipping out of the dress and the skull on her foot - there is a side view of the same one further up - love that one!

    Not in the same league, but ... https://www.facebook.com/Tattoomenagerie

    I like the more distorted ones at the end tell you the truth. Very cool.

    These are really nice figures and everything, but I don't understand why artists have to talk like this.

    For Harrison, this consciousness oozes to the surface for all to see, taking the shape of inked roses and ships and skulls. In stark contrast to the flowing ball gowns and neatly pinned hair, her women possess darkly ornate bodies that prompt the viewer to question what lies beneath.

    "Her research considers the relationship between interior and exterior spaces of the body, but looks neither inwards towards a hidden core, nor outwards from the subconscious," her statement explains, "instead looking orthogonally across the skin to the movement of the body itself, using the surface of the body as a mode of both looking and thinking."
    ???????????????

    Anyway... this reminds me of a Barbie that actually has really cool tattoos. Oh, no! Barbie has a life! - Alysha

    Pretty rad. I actually enjoyed the part about how the body's contact with itself creates a sense of self.

    I love those. I love the...what's the word I'm looking for...dichotomy (?) of the tattoos and fancy dresses. Like the pins I've seen on pinterest of tattooed disney princesses.
