Got a Girl Crush On: Ariana Page Russell’s exploration in turning a hyper sensitive skin condition into art

Sometimes called “skin writing, Dermatographic urticaria is a skin condition in which the flesh becomes raised and inflamed when stroked, scratched, rubbed, or slapped. Brooklyn-based artist Ariana now uses her own body as a canvas by carving intricate patterns, words, and stories onto it and photographing the process. She has even gone on to creating temporary tattoos and wallpaper out of her photos. Some people might be squeamish about it, but I think it’s beautifully fascinating.

'Sista Girls' by Bindi Cole

The term ‘Sistagirl’ is used to describe a transgender person in Tiwi Island culture. Traditionally, the term was ‘Yimpininni’.  The very existence of the word provides some indication of the inclusive attitudes historically extended towards Aboriginal sexual minorities. Colonisation not only wiped out many indigenous people, it also had an impact on Aboriginal culture and understanding of sexual and gender expression. As Catholicism took hold and many traditions were lost, this term became a thing of the past. Yimpininni were once held in high regard as the nurturers within the family unit and tribe much like the Faafafine from Samoa. As the usage of the term vanished, tribes’ attitudes toward queer indigenous people began to resemble that of the western world and religious right. Even today many Sistergirls are excluded from their own tribes and suffer at the hands of others.

Within a population of around 2500, there are approximately 50 ‘Sistagirls’ living on the Tiwi Islands. This community contains a complex range of dynamics including a hierarchy (a queen Sistergirl), politics, and a significant history of pride and shame. The Sistagirls are isolated yet thriving, unexplored territory with a beauty, strength and diversity to inspire and challenge.
