Tatted-Up Folk


About the project: Eurila came up with the idea for this project after spending time in McCarren Park in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Recognizing we are living in an age where art has no boundaries she sought to photograph a social wave in an intimate fashion. “Tattoos are common place in NYC, it's how people speak these days.  Too often we don't get close enough to tatted up folk to see the depth of the connection each tattoo has to that person. I wanted a closer look”.  A recent New York Times article sites a Pew Research poll about Americans with tattoos and found that 32 percent of people aged 30 to 45 have a tattoo.  So, to narrow the scope and intensify the intimacy Eurila photographs tattooed individuals with their children. Whats more intimate than ones personal life? “I am a mom with tattoos. The concept just fit my life”. Additionally the aesthetic appeal is greater. Cute kids and Tattoos? Who wouldn't love that?  Eurila is open to traveling outside of NYC for this and welcomes all inquires.
