Wound as Adornment

I always ask him to send me any interesting photos like this after a rugby match. I like the deep red colours and mostly the character these small injuries give to a person’s exterior. There is a story behind every injury, which it is not always intentional and violent. Bruises and wounds can be worn as a badge of honour that projects to others hard work and sacrifice. I want to remove the negative stigma behind bruises and wounds, and communicate the idea that they can be beautiful adornments naturally produced by the body.
