The Tattooed Phoenix
This avatar portrays how a tattoo can become in the future. I wish it could come alive and become an element of a garment where the distinction of the skin, tattoo, and garment becomes blurred. The symbol of the phoenix and the dragon is a metaphor for yin and yang. The tattoo can be like a floating armor bringing balance and harmony to the wearer, making them into a higher being where the spirit is in balance.
The Many Masked Avatar
This avatar has 4 arms each holding a mask focused on the darker side of emotions: Destruction, Deception, Rage, and Sad Smile. The main dress is a kimono cut, a reference to theatrical costumes, in which the act of wearing the masks transforms the wearer into a deity. I wanted to reexamine the stereotypical meaning of beauty, and the masks can become a shield that makes us stronger while revealing a hidden part inside us.
