    "The "Tattoo" series focuses on the problematic relationship between an image and its background. The subject is powerless to act because he is nothing more that an image. The only thing remaining is a flat surface upon which anyone can scrawl. This series is a response to the futility and drowning of the individual brought about by the onslaught of the Chinese media culture, which began to develop during the 1990s." (Qui Zhijie; H. Wu and C. Phillips, eds., "Between Past and Future," New York, 2004, p. 2111)
