More than a just bunch of inky marks carefully grounded on living skin, tattoos are honest reflections from within etched in lines and shading; raw, personal bits of truth that nobody can take away. Engraving a story where the skin was once bare sounds like a blind leap into commitment, but a commitment made sexy when adorning the sun-kissed skin of blonde beauty Irina Janina.
Cast in light and shadows, Alex Kinova‘s photography enfolds the serene atmosphere of a hot summer’s day spent in perfect company.
Red lips, a messy twist and a cigarette half smoked entwine with a lacy bra, a crochet top and a floral body suit in gently revealing and playing up every mark drawn, every line etched. Either presented in colour or in black & white, introduced with a full smile or piercing eyes, tattoos are beautiful statements that had to be made.
