For Cartography Sanne Vaassen numbered, photographed and archived all of her birthmarks. From this archive you can choose one of the marks and get them as a tattoo on your own body. Both shape and place are fixed because they will come as an exact copy from the original. Every mark will be tattooed only once by a professional tattoo-artist.
Every tattoo is photographed, framed and added to the collection of SCHUNCK*, Heerlen, NL.
Currently twenty-six people have a copy birthmark, these copies are photographed and framed.
