Mark your body

Nogge Bodd series, digital art, New York, USA, 2017

An abstract tattoo can represent a physical item but it can also be used to express emotional & spiritual ideas.

The use of color & shape defines ideas or emotions within the painting: to be depicted as an abstraction gives
the subject of the tattoo a second meaning.

I was suffering from a strong depressive episode when I made this series, which I felt as touching both my body
& perception of the world around me.

I, therefore, symbolized this physical pain by visual representations of bodies marked by alterations & deformations.
