Korean artist Kim Joon fabricates images of hollow porcelain that resemble nude bodies. Detailed with luxury ceramic brand graphics, the patterned pieces give new respect to a taboo art form.

Kim’s work has neatly overturned the negative connotations surrounding tattoos in Korea. In his hands, not only do tattoos reflect social habits and desires but they’re also a vehicle for transforming the body into a highly aestheticized object.

Tattoos are not only physical inscriptions on the body but also signifiers of mental impressions left on the consciousness. Tattoo imagery reflects our obsessions and deep-seated attachments.
