14 tattooed people get naked to break the clichés


The clothes do not make the man

The tattoo does not always have a good reputation, even if it has existed for millennia. People who tattoo themselves are mistakenly thought to be irresponsible and infrequent. To show that tattooed people are actually "Mr. and Mrs. Everybody", photographer Alan Powdrill photographed tattooed people with and without clothes. The result is sublime!
