Our generation is the rebel of all generations. We have broken boundaries as to what kind of body art is acceptable in the modern work-force. My American Lives teacher has a huge tattoo of a pair of scissors on her forearm. 10 years ago she would have never been hired because of that. Now, even the most conservative of people have jumped on the tattoo and piercing bandwagon. Even hair has become a new form of self-expression. The length, texture and style of one’s hair is self defining. I didn’t have to go far to find people to take pictures of for my project. They are all close friends and each tattoo, piercing and hairstyle is unique.
