Moody Tattooed Boudoir Session
When Tess Farnsworth submitted this stunning boudoir session, it was an easy choice – the client was absolutely stunning, with awesome outfit choices from Urban Outfitters, and some super amazing tattoos. From the amazing client:
“My tattoos are what make me feel strong. My tattoos tell a story..and they are my story. Each and every tattoo is from a time in my life when I had to endure or survive something challenging, difficult or emotionally painful. I see it as an art form of both expression and self discovery. People constantly ask me which tattoos I regret or would change and my answer will alway stay the same: not a single damn one of them. Each represent me at a certain time or point in my life that I get to see each and every day and remind me that I am the woman I am because of those times and how I have grown from them. Sure I have plenty of cover ups, an those are the most significant and important reminders from very important times in my life. My tattoos are me, they are my story and I am proud of them.
When I was contacted to do a Boudoir photo shoot, of course I was nervous. Any girl would be, especially one who has one arm that is covered from shoulder to wrist to elbow with black ink and the other that has a large piece involving female nudity. But overcoming nerves and uncertainty was a proud and thankful feeling that there are still other people/artists who appreciate and open themselves to other individuals who also don’t lead a normal life and search and aspire to spread love and artistic point of views to the world. I love showing people that it is okay to be different and it is okay to look different. This Boudoir shoot was the perfect opportunity to let my own guard down and possibly inspire and encourage other woman to love, appreciate, and be proud of their body and that each of us is entitled and deserving to tell OUR story OUR way.”
