Photographer Nick Knight’s digital platform SHOWstudio has teamed up with Garage magazine in an exploration into tattoo’s (ever increasing) relationship with fashion, creating an editorial to be interpreted onto the body, captured and streamed live to the site’s viewers. The editorial shot by Knight, creative directed by Garage’s Dasha Zhukova and styled by Charlotte Stockdale will take inspiration from “the rebellious roots of body art and it’s association with subcultures and tribes”, to be reinterpreted by tattoo artists Scott Campbell, Angelique and Madame Chän onto the bodies of six volunteers, all live streamed throughout the process on SHOWstudio. The project named Always & Forever, alluding to the permanence of body art in comparison to Fashion’s fleeting nature, intends to create the editorial’s counterpart in something enduring.
The project will be streamed live today and tomorrow here.
