London-based photographer Alan Powdrill has captured in this striking photo collection a series of portraits revealing the hidden tattoo artwork worn by everyday people.
The 'Covered' photo series depicts people wearing ordinary clothing in outdoor settings, and juxtaposes the image with them showing off their bare tattoo artwork on full display. The work of Powdrill certainly shows that often there is more than meets the eye, and in many cases you would never suspect the full canvases of body art that sit just below a layer of clothing.
Each of the dual before and after photos also comes with a brief quote from the individual explaining the history of, or their feelings towards, their collection of tattoos. Often leaving little to the imagination, this photo series offers an interesting look into the intriguing subculture of body art enthusiasts.
