“Through my art pieces, I try to convey the message that we are more than what is presented on the surface. Just as with people, the patterns of my artwork hold a deeper significance than what you see. It is not only about acknowledging who we are now, but also never forgetting what is grounded within us: our traditions, perceptions of life, where we came from and the things that influence us to get to where we want to be.” – Melissa Manuel, tattoo artist
