Austin Tott likes his tattoos tiny. Tiny and abstract, and posing with their bigger counterparts. This means taking a wrist with a ship tattoo and photographing with a naval map background. Or taking a picture of a wrist with envelope ink and a wall full of… well, envelopes. By far the smartest choice, I think, is the fox tattoo and log background, unless I’m mistaken about the hidey-holes of foxes.

Conceptual photography is Austin Tott’s forte. Born in Seattle, Washington, he’s an art director, as well as a product and conceptual designer. Tott likes fusing surreal concepts and compositions with raw emotions. “Striving at times to even make dark emotions and painful or new experiences a beautiful thing,” it is stated on Tott’s website. “His work with product photography showcases his excellent eye for lighting and styling.”
