Got A Tattoo? Gordon Ross Photography Is Looking For You

I have an exhibit and a book in the works and want to include you. For the next three months, I’m calling on anyone who has a tattoo to take part in Tattoo + You: A Photo Story of Body Ink.

 (Gordon Ross)

The exhibit opening and book launch will take place this coming fall. The event is about telling peoples’ stories through a series of tattoo portraits and words.

More details about the event will be announced over the next few months.

Stay tuned…

  1. I would LOVE to participate!!! I have a Theta tattoo and a great story behind it as well.

    Send me an e-mail.

  2. I have many tattoos.. many stories.. many more to go. I am a photographer and love nothing more then photography + ink.. I live in Powell River BC.

  3. I recently had a tattoo done of a butterfly wing on my back. It’s is very large and covers half of one side, mostly in black and gray with small pops of colour. I had it done in the memory of my beautiful daughter that passed away at 18 days old. If you would like to see it, please let me know and I can email you a photo.
    Thank you for your consideration.


    • Hi Lori

      I emailed you the other day … can you let me know if you got the email? And yes, I would love to honour you and the memory of your daughter by including you in Tattoo + You: A Photo Story of Body Ink.

      Thanks and bye for now.

  4. Hi Gordon, I have a tattoo of a labris on my back, one I visualized and designed with the help of an artist who then did the tattoo work. It’s my first and likely only tattoo. I had it done two years ago when I was 55. The labris, a two headed hatchet, is related to women of Crete, labyrinths, bulls, butterflies, power, strength, courage and determination. As soon as I visualized this image (and I guess that’s the real story) I knew it was going to be a tattoo on my body. I’d never wanted a tattoo before that, and have never wanted one since. But I love the one I have. Anne

  5. Hey there,

    I’m covered fairly heavily in tattoos and most have a decent story behind them. I’d love to be a part of this project if there is still time. I’ll shoot you an e-mail as well.



  6. I got lots of penitentiary tattoos but not typical dragons and skulls with flames with snakes coming out of the flames surrounded by demon faces and stretched melting skin! lol, face neck arms shins…
