Animal Tattoos and Tattooed Animals

Being an avid lover of both Japanese tattoos as well as animals, I am really loving this piece by Beth Cavener Stichter and Alessandro Gallo (who painted the beautiful tattoos) 

In her own words: 

I want to pry at those uncomfortable, awkward edges between animal and human. Entangled in their own internal and external struggles, the figures express frustration for the human tendency towards cruelty and lack of understanding. Something conscious and knowing is captured in their gestures and expressions. An invitation and a rebuke.
