Artist Jenny Holzer Creates Temporary Tattoos

You may be familiar with the work of Jenny Holzer, whose word-based public artworks have become ubiquitous in our culture. One of her most famous projects, projected across the side of a building, features the phrase, “Protect me from what I want.” Her themes often tackle womanhood, war, and consumerism. Now, the Whitney Museum has taken Holzer’s truisms and turned them into temporary tattoos you can wear, and which, if applied, would, technically, make you a work of art. Choice sentiments range from “In a dream you saw a way to survive and you were full of joy” to “Turn soft and lovely anytime you have the chance.” [BuzzFeed]
