Mother Ink is a part of my ongoing portrait series Ink Stories, which explores women’s life-stories and sexuality through their tattoos. Leah, who grew up in a small town surrounded by normalcy, was inspired by art and rebel women in faraway lands. She transformed her skin to reflect the extraordinary she felt on the inside. Moving to NYC, she got into an abusive relationship, and found herself pregnant. Inspired by the love for her child and the rebel women portrayed on her skin, she returned back to her small hometown to heal and to raise her son as a single mother.
