Why We Hate the Photography Style of Peter Beard
Peter Beard has been known for his signature tattooed eyebrows.
His signature tattoos are on every one of his portraits.
We asked him to explain why they are so much better than the tattoo on his neck.
Peter Beard: [Laughs] I’ve always been really fascinated by the idea of the tattoo, and that is it.

When someone asks me what my tattoos look like, I’ll just say, “That’s Peter Beard,” and then they’ll just go, “Wow.”
I really want people recognize me as who I truly am.
You want to have a tattoo that’s very unique to you, so when you get it, it’s a little bit like, OK, this one is different.
