American photographer named Austin Tott created a series of pictures, in which he explores the relationship between tiny minimalist tattoos and various backgrounds.
The artist puts the tattoos into context by combining them with the surroundings. As a result, we get a collection of rich visual metaphors and ambiguous phrases that we can read with our eyes. For example, by putting a little bicycle tattooed on somebody’s wrist against a blurred picture of a city, the photographer wants us to take an urban adventure.
Each and every image tells a different story. Whether you’re in the mood for riddles, or just enjoy looking at pretty pictures, check them all out in the gallery below.
