Jamie-Lee Best



All tattoos have a story to tell…


Based on the female members of my family, I wanted to portray the stories they have to tell behind theirs. Some old, some new, some faded and some structured. My aim was to let the series of images tell a story on their own, however I realise combining them with text was a better way to tell the story, rather than the audience making their own assumptions about what each tattoo represents
