"My bird can not fly -skull's tattoo series"
Tattooing is one of the oldest forms of body art. And Ifm just repeating the cliche act of body art performance. Tattoing already become a popular art form for common people from teenage adventorous up to tribal heritages, involving various artistic and aesthetic expressions.
Skullfs tattoo series trying to fill the whole part of my stomache with tattoos of different images of skull from different tattoo artists. I guess nothing new about my performance.
This time, in a form of personal (relativist) methaphor, I try to symbolize birds migration as an adventorous, yet a very painful journey of human civilizations. An intercourse of love and hatred. A competition between a doctorfs act to save lives and a soldierfs gesture to kill lives. A technology of building and a technology destroying.

"May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And my love, Goodbye."
