The Rebirth of Nlaka’pamux Tattooing

These are pictures of me hand tattooing my first Nlaka’pamux hand tattoo on someone other than myself, this is so awesome. The tattoo design was inspired by the pictographs of the Stein Valley which i will be visiting next week and photographing as many pictographs as possible.

The photos were taken by Wes Wilson who does weddings and other event photographs, the tattoo client is Kristine Wilson. Both Kris and Wes are Nlaka’pamux, Kris is my sister and Wes my brother in law.
