ouch i came close to having a clash tattoo once but shit out at the last minute. great documentary of the event tho
Enjoyed looking through the series...I even found myself flinching a little with a couple of the close-ups nearer the end, so they definitely drew me in photo by photo. Really cool.
What an interesting set - a well told story! Abel
A beautifully presented and very personal document.
The diverse world of tattoos spreads (and covers) a little more.
A mixture of pride, pain, and pleasure, Ruthie, shot and presented in documentary form. The images need each other for context in order to express these ideas.
Superb set of images!..and a bloody novel idea to boot!..top notch!
Lovely series, Ruthie. I love the step-by-step story-telling layout, and you capture the emotion of the event well, even without your intense eye-contact style that I also love ;) Excited nervousness, relief, pride...
It's also interesting that you chose black and white for this story, since tattoos are all about expression and creativity, often associated with colour (ink/dye/pattern)! You focus on the person, the cause, as well as the technique.
So, the question is, when are you getting a matching one, and where?? Heh! :P

I may rethink....First time i have seen someone document this. A great peace Ruth. K
