Tattoos travel around the world with someone for as long as they live. This artwork is no longer purchased in a gallery, or shown off in a private collection as a prized piece rather individuals collect work from their favorite artists and permanently display the work on their skin.

The Parliament Arts Organization is looking for tattooed individuals willing to submit images of their work and information about the artists who tattooed them. After the selection process, The Parliament Arts Organization will have a professional photographer set up a styled photo shoot to capture each individual's tattoos
