Kung Fu Tiger! Martial Arts Torso Glitter Tattoo

Jan 2010 –

I was contacted by Andrew Dasz of www.kungfugrupo.com to say he was visiting HK and would love to work with me. His portfolio was impressive, as was Rosemarie Conway’s, a UK photographer who would be visiting at the same time, so we arranged a collaberation.  As Andrew was a well-known martial arts choreographer, and the Year of the Tiger was approaching, I opted for a ‘Kung Fu tiger’ design.

The glitter tattoo (I added green paint to make it visble)started out like a ‘real’ tattoo, in matt black mica, near his waist band. As it rose it  developed into colour and sparkling glitter.


 He was glad to be able to wear a top as we all walked down to Stanley – it wasn’t the warmest winter! We started out on a small, deserted favourite beach of mine, (which Andrew recognised from a vintage martial arts film) only to be joined by a local high school field trip and TWO wedding shoots!

Rose then had him leaping and kicking on all the beaches arounsd Stanley as well as posing in the public gardens and by the temples at dusk.

She added some amazing effects to what was already a stunning shoot.
