A Bag That Carries You

With respect to the philosophy of tattooing and inspired by my own experiences growing up, I searched to create an object that carries memories. Inked, a leather bag, not only holds your items, but your memories and experiences. The leather allows for direct tattooing and will ages and scars over the years, rendering the bag more authentic and true to you, the owner.
