Vess, courtesy of photographer Lekhena Porter and tattoo artist Paul Stillen

This photograph by Lekhena Porter is from an installation by Stanislava Pinchuk, Documenting the Body, which presented curated work by Australian tattoo artists as part of a broader suite of exhibitions, Our Bodies, Our Voices, Our Marks. Here, Vanessa shows her tattoo of a Chinese vase with peonies, by artist Paul Stillen.

"Growing up with my grandparents, in my house we had a lot of old Chinese vases. Those very typical blue ones... they just sit on the ground looking pretty. We always had a few paintings of peonies - ones that my dad had done, or that my grandparents brought back from their travels. I really liked the vases that Paul has done with his other vases, and I just said I want one of those. Make it to the shape of my back, and we'll put a flower in it."

Immigration Museum

The Immigration Museum first opened in Melbourne's Old Customs House in 1998. Customs House was built to be one of Melbourne's grand buildings - customs being the main source of government revenue until 1915, when income tax was introduced. Its grandeur declared that Melbourne was a thriving and wealthy metropolis, linked by trade to Britain and the other major cities of the British Empire.
