This is strictly my interpretation of her art: blue eyes=white person, zipper on arm=enter body. In other words, "A white person may enter my bod.."

Uh, think you might be reading a little too much into this...

Simple, don't get tattoos.

Hand with eye alone would have been better. Often less is more.

I love the eye on the hand. That would make a cool tattoo.

But everyone wants to show their individuality so they can be like everyone else.

Strangely, I find myself looking more at the model than the art ...

I wish I had the means, or at least open minded parents who could have let me study whatever I felt like at university, including art. That way you would have seen one less bitter poster on JT.
