Photographer Reveals What Hides Under Tattooed People’s Everyday Clothes

London-based photographer Alan Powdrill proves in his new Covered photo series to expose tattooed people in a series of diptychs, putting side by side dressed portraits and portraits revealing tattoos. The people in his series, many of whom are tattooed chin-to-toe, are all walking, breathing works of art.

An amazing series which like a secret identity, reveals the hidden side of these people, and demonstrates once again that the clothes do not make the man…

The photographs of Alan Powdrill will be exhibited in London from November 9th to 20th, 2015. More information and the complete series on his website. We already talked about this photographer with his project Soapbox Racers.
