About

BEAUTY IS NOT ONLY INK DEEP is a unique tattoo photography project imagined by photographer Niall Patterson.

The English Dictionary describes beauty as "a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight".

But what does beauty mean to those who chose to cover their bodies in art? Do they ink their bodies in the name of beauty, or does it mean much more?

In 2012 Niall made the decision to find out. From then on he has been dedicated to meeting and talking to members of the tattoo community. From artists to models, shop assistants to ambulance drivers, a variety of people have become part of his inspiring project.

Their portraits are captured by Niall in a selection of stunning, artistic images. A snapshot of the world of tattoos today, captured at one moment in time. These pictures tell their stories, capture the emotion behind their ink, and break down the boundaries of everything you thought you knew about "people with tattoos."

Niall offers a glimpse into the souls of those who chose to permanently ink their bodies as a tribute to their own lives and decisions.

These stories and beautiful images will truly make you see that beauty is not only ink deep.
