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.
