GEISHA INK is embodied by Ginzilla, a young woman born into a traditional Japanese family of uncompromisingly strict conservative values. The effect was suffocating to her wild heart, engendering acts of rebellion perhaps most visible as the arresting marks of defiance, written in permanent ink on the canvas of her body. These images tell the story of her life; illustrations of tigers, wolves, and dragons surge up against societal expectations of female submission and obedience. Ginzilla's first lover was a tattoo artist, a predilection which has guided her sexual journey. All of her body art was composed and executed by lovers, compounding its personal meaning to her, while forming an illustrative map of her life.
