Sculpture: Tattooed Ballet Arms

Korean artist Min Jeong Seo molded these porcelain cast sculptures from the arms of professional ballet dancers.

The pocelain arms in dancing position are painted with japanese Yakuza-style tattoo patterns.

In the combination the two contrasting cliches open each other up. Like a real tattoo that lies under the skin the painted patterns lie under the pocelain glaze. –Min Jeong Seo
