Submissions, Rules, and Conduct

Please read ALL of the following before submitting any images. It should only take you about five minutes. Thank you!

Note: If a photographer and a model have the same image in both of their galleries and each individual wants to submit to the group, it is on a first come first serve basis. Sorry, but we do not want identical images in the galleries, much less images that are even just a bit similar. Be diverse!

To Join:

We accept anyone who wants to join! Just click "Join Group". You are ALL welcome here no matter how professional or amateur your work may be! If you are not a photographer or an individual with any mods, but still want to see what this group has to offer; please feel free to click the DeviantWatch button for the group.

Group Info

This group does have nudity, and it does have gore.
So please, be well aware that your eyes are at our mercy. ;)

TheLivingCanvas is all about appreciating and supporting the art of body modification, no matter what form it comes in; and the photographers who know how to capture it. You don't have to have tattoos or body mods to love them. It's a passion, and a beautiful art on many levels. However, this group is looking for something a little different than just images of any tattoo or piercing. Here, we don't want to see snap shots of any kind. The stuff you see in a piercer or tattoo artists portfolio, is not what we're looking for. This group is for those who can capture the beautiful world of body modification in an artistic and unique fashion. We hope to see many ARTISTIC PERSPECTIVES of the beautiful concept of being a living canvas- the human body. If you do have flash art that you'd like to get noticed, feel free to look into some of our affiliates to see what they offer; but we DO NOT accept flash art here.

Keep in mind: We look for QUALITY, not quantity.

Looking for a tattoo artist, or a tattoo aficionado, who is interested in reviewing a novel.  It's a piece of dark fiction, and so far has received wonderful reviews. Check it out:

It's the story of a tattoo artist and his human canvass who get kidnapped in a Tijuana to San Diego drug tunnel.

It is only in Kindle version at this point, but paperback is coming in September.
