Embrace (4 of 4) by aneemal
Embrace (4 of 4)
A series of images exploring the idea of tattoos being a visual impression left on the skin by the sensation of being held, either in tenderness, or force. The tattoos could be indicative of the emotional 'scarring' of abuse, or a lingering memory of a loved one’s touch. 

With our bodies we have the power to restrain, dominate and oppress - but, not exclusively as this can be done mentally also, perhaps going unnoticed by appearance. Both love and abuse leave marks, whether physical or not.

There are many limiting factors of touch, such as time and distance. We can’t be touched by those who are absent, but that may not lessen their ‘hold’ upon us. Likewise, the burning desire to feel the touch of a loved one who is not present is like having their absence etched upon the skin.

An embrace can be fatal, but can also save and restore life. The same pair of hands; two antithetical outcomes. How is it that an act of intimacy can have the potential to both harm or comfort in equal measures?

I shared your facebook photo in our local doll group on facebook, never used the share function before, but I'm glad to support an awesome artist! I'm sure they'll like her too.
