Casting Call

OK, I've put this off long enough already and since my schedule for the next couple of weeks has been cleared because of the holidays and the enforced break I'm taking, I might as well start now or not at all:

I'm making a casting call for people, male and female, who have tattoos. Anywhere, any design, preferably extensive ones (not one of those teeny, weeny little ones on bellies or ankles or stuff) - anything larger than maybe the size of a whole palm. I'm doing a personal project on people who think of tats as art, a form of expression, anything, and who want to show off and be willing to appear in a book I'll be producing at the end of it. There'll be an interview as well, and parts of it will appear in the book as well. So, if you have tats and don't mind appearing in an image in a book and have a bit of what you say to me during the shoot appear as well, leave a message in the comments for this entry.

I'm looking for about 60 subjects.

I can't pay for the modelling, but I can pay for drinks, meals, transportation. So let me know, leave a comment.

Thanks.



There's that... casting will be between 12 August and the end of the month, shoots will begin, hopefully in September and then go on for as long as it takes.

    I've got one the size of a rather large palm (about 18cmx12cm????) it's on my back so it's a little hard to measure. That sound ok to you?

    I'd rather not put my face to the tatt though.

    Uncle ... come to my office with TYM for lunch for casting lah. I rallied 3 colleagues for you - 2 guys, 1 doll. Massive half bodies for the guys, full back and calf for the doll. One dude has agreed, still waiting to hear from the other two.

    After that still can eat killer sandwich downstairs and gossip ... want or not?

    how about a small tat that merges with a surgical scar? think it should be quite artistic, although its still in a cast, so i can't tell :P

    Hey all, thanks for all the responses so far.

    Will be leaving for Bali for a short break from tomorrow, so if you don't hear from me between then and Wednesday next, be patient. Keep the comments coming and I'll get in touch with you over email as soon as I'm able.

    Thanks!

  • At 2:23 AM, August 28, 2005, Blogger Joan said…

    I got one. But it isn't the size of the palm. It's a picture of a man mowing the lawn at the nether region. Suitable? Can email me at valska@gmail.com

     
  • At 7:08 PM, September 21, 2005, Blogger E said…

    Joan told me about this - I've one at the back of my right hip - an abstract phoenix. There's a good story behind it too.

    I've a small sun on the front of my left hip, and I know that you said you prefer large tattoos (the phoenix is palm-sized), but the sun and the phoenix - all part of one tattoo. :)
