Summary/Artist's Statement
Sicanje:
Tattoos are a representation of identity living on one’s flesh forever. For Catholic women and children in Croatia during the 20th century, tattoos meant protection from physical abuse and evil. The most visible parts of the body are adorned with sicanje exhibiting age, mistreatment, and neglect. Although tattoos are a form of expression, sicanje was a form of protection.
