Artist's statement

Yvonne Morris, Australian-Filipino dual national, had always dreamed of becoming a body piercer: ‘That lasted about a year. Throughout that year I had the mindset that I would grow as a piercer, modify my body in so many ways. I was so comfortable with my appearance – with
my tattoos – up until recently [when] I have felt more self-conscious, being in the fashion industry as a model. I have constant thoughts that maybe I should give it up because I have tattoos, but modelling is where my passion lies.’
