You are the sky


Constellations have been there since the beginning of time, yet they don’t really exist.
They are imaginary systems invented, and not discovered, by farmers, poets,
astronomers and sailors in order to know which star is which.
Their names come from classical mythology, tools and animals.
In 1930 the International Astronomical Union divided the sky into 88 official constellations, so that every star belongs within the precise boundaries of one of these.
I believe our body to be the sky: beauty spots are its stars.

You are the sky, 2007
88 people, 1 per constellation + 1 for 1 asterism, may request a personal constellation. By tattooing an extra beauty spot, whose color, size and position I will indicate, a
constellation will rise on their body
Each constellation will be inscribed once only.
