Portrait of a Vandal

So MissMe has been posing these around the world for a few years now... and i felt it was time to post just a few...
Hong Kong, Geneva, Montreal, New York, Miami, La Havana, Paris, Vancouver, Sa Francisco, Dakar, Zurich...




"The Vandal symbolizes many things, but one center idea is the one of regaining the power and control over our bodies and sexuality in a bold unapologetic way. (us: women)
I use the breast as a platform for displaying the many faces of feminity. Aggressive, sweet, unreal, annoyed, impolite...
Sex has always been used by traditional society as a way to control and shame women. To be ashamed of the power of our bodies. To be ashamed and punished for our natural sexuality. No more.
The other sketches of The Vandal i have added to the tattoos as well as the scarf are a further expression of that idea. I believe women should be thought and encouraged to know and please themselves first, before learning and pleasing the other. it is the true way to equality, to mutual respect and greater partnerships."
