In the Tattoo Series, Heyman uses a printmaking process called chine collé, which involves layering tissue-thin paper atop a support paper and running them together through a press.

In Untitled [Vincent], the artist’s husband sprawls out in the sand. A marbleized sheet of paper becomes a secondary "skin" atop the figure, transforming him into part of the natural environment. This skin—slipped between the support paper and the imprinted ink—literally and figuratively creates a separate layer. He lies exposed yet hidden by both the sandy dunes and the chine collé mask.
