Full-Body Tattoos: Unlikely Subjects

A new exhibition of photos reveals the clothed and naked states of several Brits who have full-body tattoos. Most of them didn’t surprise me. A few did. Like the pictured guy called Bill, who says: ‘I’m not the obvious kind of guy who has tattoos: I’m 63, I’ve had a public school and Oxbridge education, a City career, a wife and kids. I like the incongruity: I live this upper-middle-class respectable life but have “No fucking way” tattooed on my chest.’ Everybody wants to be a rebel.
