Amanda Wachob: Tattooed Fruit

"Fruit" is a photographic series of tattooed blood oranges and pomegranates created by New York based painter and tattoo artist Amanda Wachob. When beginning a conventional tattoo apprenticeship, fruit is often the practice surface before skin. In a sophisticated take on this, Wachob has used her tattooing needle as the medium to further develop her vision. Wachob, who takes her inspiration from the work of the abstract expressionists, has said,"In the same way that a brush can paint the interior of a house or render a fine oil painting, I see the tattoo machine as a tool that can make art."
