Tiger Stripes is a 2011 project in which I painted tiger stripes on my back and sun-burned a pattern into it. I was inspired by the very different groups of people---from sorority girls to extreme cyclists---I noticed spending great amounts of time in the sun perfecting their tans and tan lines. As a midwestern, generally un-tan person, I wanted to take that tanline zeal and put it toward something more extreme and more conceptually relevant to human (or animal) skin than playboy bunny stickers or sandal lines. Thus the tiger stripes.
I hope to repeat this project in the future--I'd like more stripes and better documentation.
