Typographic Tattoo

Students were asked to design a typographic tattoo and use their personal, social, cultural and political views to make a statement. As part of their investigation, students were asked to consider their typography, placement of the tattoo on their body, and their message.

Clarissa’s typographic tattoo explored her daily battle between beauty and indulgence—should she eat that delicious looking doughnut or should she “be a good girl” and have a whole grain bagel instead? Clarissa’s placement of her hands on her stomach to create a doughnut/bagel shape heightens the viewers level of engagement with her solution.
