I Heart Tattoos

I love getting photos of tattooed people. I prefer them to be good tattoos, but honestly, almost without exception I think tattoos, good or bad, make a person look better. Try and think about the people below without the tattoos, and while I’m sure they’d still look good, there’d be something important missing. When I was a little kid, I drew on myself — I’ve never liked the appearance of plainskin.

Credits, left to right: 1. Tribal by Mike at Premiere in Brooklyn, and ankh by Ink Link in Charlotte, NC, 2. Kelly’s very nice carnation tattoo by Jay at Addictive in London, Ontario, and 3. Ava‘s wonderful work by Yann at Your meat is mine in Paris, France.

    It’s tough to see Charlotte’s ink, I do like the flowers, but it’s Ava’s that gets me, it’s just great. Whispy, magical beautiful comes to mind.

  2. Very beautiful. When the tattoo highlights the ody part as it does here, it really brings out the features of their bodies. I love the middle one.
