Artist David Cata, 21, uses his body as a canvas for his project Overexposed Emotions which illustrates how much the members of his family, including his girlfriend, Tamara, are woven into his life. Each eye-watering artwork takes about four hours to complete, after which David, a music student and artist, films himself picking the stitches out of his hands. Using a needle he very carefully pierces the top layer of his skin before drawing the thread through to create a stitch. He then repeats the process with different coloured thread for up to four hours to create surprisingly detailed pictures of people who have influenced him.
