Once the preserve of sailors, pirates and ex-cons, body art is becoming more creative, more familiar and more acceptable.

And Guernsey has a surprisingly high proportion of tattooed men and women.

James Senior has more tattoos than most, and is aiming to cover his entire body eventually.

This gallery features photos by Tom Tardiff of James' body art.

We'd love to see other examples from Guernsey residents, so if you'd like to send us photos of your 'ink', then please upload them to us at www.thisisguernsey.com/upload-files.
