Anne Siems

The tattoos are fables, they are mythical signs, they are excerpts from poetry, they are rites of passage. These tattoos are unapologetic and brave, political, even if not in a direct way. They are markers of the world we live in at this time that on so many levels feels right on the edge in many ways, both personal and general. — AS 1/23
