In my portrait photography I have always felt that scars were part of the stories that our bodies tell.
This photograph I took of June Gladney is one of those stories.
So these photographs of scars and tattoos from Bored Panda spoke to me. Even though they are not in any way full portraits, they still are striking stories. There are tattoos that hide scars, tattoos that show scars or incorporate them into the design. And there are tattoos that comment on scars. Each persons’ story is different. The tattoo becomes part of the story.
