Both nude photography and tattoo are body art. But while tattoo is openly accepted by society, nude photography is still subject to social prejudices. The question is how can nude photography be more openly welcomed and tattoo doesn’t only tell a person’s story, but also be part of culture evolution?

To find answers to these questions, and Handxam tattoo co-organized an open talk with positive and cultural perspectives. The event was honored to welcome many attendees from a variety of professions and nationalities who share a common interest in nude photography and tattoo art. Among them, there are people who have never had a tattoo or never taken nude pictures of themselves before. In addition to talking and exchanging point of view about nudity photography and tattoo art from a cultural perspective, the participants also learned about stories behind the photo that ByC exhibited at Handxam Studio and lively watched Mr. Hung Le, tattoo artist at Handxam Studio, sketching a Vietnamese traditional bronze drum design on the shoulder of model Twee Oiii.
