For many years now, the photographer Björn Abelin has been portraying people with tattoos. Their life stories, the motifs they have etched into their bodies, and their reasons are all different. It is not always that important to show their tattoos to the world. Often it is enough to know that it is there and can be uncovered and displayed on occasions that they choose themselves. This exhibition is one such occasion.
