banana tattoo portraits


 
artwork by matt robinson

 

UK-based matt robinson was eating lunch and happened to have a scalpel next to him…
‘it’s quite nice how you cant see anything for a few minutes after scratching it and then the image slowly fades in.’ he says.

the graphic artist and illustrator honey is the founder of the website sweet station. she decided to draw on the outside peel with a safety pin.
the small punctures allow air to reach the fruit and the punctured part of the peel turns brown,
each piece takes from 20 minutes to 2 hours time to create it and, once photographed, honey eats it!
