Patricia Aridjis

From the Black Hours Project. A documentary photo series about incarcerated women in Mexico. I found online that during one of her visits one of the prisoners beg her to take an image of her because that was the only way she could leave that place. Powerful work indeed. There're many other images but these were the ones I preferred to show because of the tattoos of course and the strong imagery and feeling you get from them. I hope they are doing well, god bless them all.

Pink Lips Tattoos in Nigeria

Wow man. I just found out about this tattooing trend in Lagos, Nigeria. Men in the city tattoo their lips with pink or red because it makes them more attractive to women. The end result looks very strange to me but it's fascinating how people come up with weird things like this for the sake of beauty. If they feel awesome good for them. The cost is around $30 bucks and the tattooers get between 7 and 10 clients per day.

There are more videos of the subject on YouTube. This one is part of a mini documentary from the guys at BattaBox, Nigeria's coolest news and entertainment video platform. Lots of great content about Nigeria's vibrant culture on that site. Check them out!
