Korean artist Min Jeong Seo molded these porcelain cast sculptures from the arms of professional ballet dancers.

The pocelain arms in dancing position are painted with japanese Yakuza-style tattoo patterns.

In the combination the two contrasting cliches open each other up. Like a real tattoo that lies under the skin the painted patterns lie under the pocelain glaze. –Min Jeong Seo
