Last Sept I was giving a 3 weeks training on multispectral imaging for art examination at the Instituto Nacional de Patrimonio Cultural in Quito, Ecuador. While we were doing UV fluorescence photography, I noticed in the pitch dark room, my student was glowing in the dark. It turned out it was his tattoo.
So, I was intrigued and I thought it worth to give his tattoo a multispectral imaging examination. It was out of curiosity, though, doing some little research I found out some applications of multispectral imaging for tattoo pigments identification
It turned out that my student, conservator and artist, designs his tattoo, a mix of Ecuadorian and worldwide cultural symbols. The Wandijas, those spirits that look so much as extraterrestrial visitors, talk with some dinosaurs, creatures Cristian is definitely fascinated by.
