lick it, stick it

recently purchased a dozen or so packets of kid's rub on tattoos.
an online impulse buy. we've all done it. don't judge me.

my vast assortment contains tattoos depicting dinosaurs, fairies, bugs, hearts and cute baby animals.
perfectly suited to make a colourful or likely perverse feature in some future Nino project.

just a quick one to share some images from a recent festival i performed in.
the festival curated by Jacob v Joyce was titled ORI and celebrated Yoruba culture and the Orisha gods.

i was the Oggue, god of horned creatures who symbolises male pride and masculinity.
for this performance i created a horned woolen headress and also a staff which was used to goad the crowd and 'sweep spirits'.
