Covered: Double Portraits of Tattoo Lovers Reveal the Art Hidden Underneath Clothes

For his latest photo project, British photographer Alan Powdrill (previously) shot a provocative series of double portraits featuring the secret lives of tattoo lovers. The fascinating project called "Covered", reveals the art hidden underneath the clothes of tattoo enthusiasts who have made incredible financial and physical sacrifices to have the intricate designs penned across their bodies. Powdrill explains, "For some of us, our skin isn’t simply the largest organ of our bodies but “an ever-changing canvas” that can be transformed and molded with ink." Covered opens on November 11th at Downstairs at MOTHER, 10 Redchurch Street in East London.
