Currently reading : Popek – Eyeball Tattoo
Documentary film-maker Will Robson Scott’s rare and intimate look into the process of body modification as Polish rapper turned MMA fighter Popek has the whites of his eyes tattooed.
‘For them it’s [a] stupid idea, but for me it’s like I’m gonna be complete’.
Throughout the rapper-turned-fighter expresses a sentiment that lies at the core of modification, the notion of identity; but a torn one, a self doubt and constant verbal worry that onlookers will ‘see the devil’ in his eye. This feeling of completion, though, was apparently short-lived as some time after the Polish polymath underwent further modification, facial scarification with two jagged scars crossing the side of his face.
