Forever Guaranteed is an ongoing project, created in collaboration with tattoo artist, Devan Smith. Colorful lines and shapes - designed on my phone - fade, bend, split, and intersect with Devan's floral designs. Applied to my body to mark my own experiences, the series is a deeply personal, lifelong endeavor. The meaning of each piece, however, is rarely articulated. Rather, I prefer to discuss the series from a formal perspective, extrapolating on the works in terms of their abstraction or the ways in which they challenge the stylistic conventions of tattooing.
