  9. Back in the mid 70’s I was the only one in my barracks who didn’t get drunk enough to stumble out into the Tokyo streets and get tattooed. Didn’t think it would become fashionable. Thanks for sharing ’em.

  10. Love tattoos, they are so expressive of their owners. When I see pics like these makes me want to get another one… Great shots.

  11. some cool tattoos 🙂

  12. These are awesome fella! Great work. I really admire people who get tattoos though I don’t want one myself. I like their courage that they will always feel a certain way about something, and their faces here capture that brilliantly!

  13. nice! I have one tattoo. The tattoo i proudly sport is of a pair of fairy wings. It reminds me that I can fly. 🙂

    • Thank you. Try the Texas menu button in the header and scroll down to the second post to view some large and beautiful butterfly wings. If the wings are large enough, you can fly far.

  14. These are great. I love the honesty in your work. So, what tats do you have? 😉

    • Rainey, I don’t have any tattoos on the outside. There are many images burnt into my brain.


      June 8, 2013 at 3:11 pm

      • Haha, I know what you mean. I have many, many images burnt into my brain as well! I may consider a tat, but it would have to have a very special meaning for me. Meanwhile, I love seeing the choices made by others.

  15. Gorgeous photos…I love the one with the girl dancing in the “friends” pic, so fun!


    June 9, 2013 at 12:52 am

    • Thank you DAnna. That photo was the only one requiring a wide angle lens because the place was so crowded.


      June 9, 2013 at 7:03 am

  16. Nice portraits. Summer is here and this inspires me to get out and start looking for some great ink to photograph. Thanks for the inspiration.

  17. Great to see all those faces! Like the Goth Girl photo… 😉

  18. Warm weather in Chicago certainly brings out the display of tattoos. What a varied group of individuals that you captured. Thanks for the visit and the like of my recent posts including “Same Flower Different Look”.

  21. Ron, you make a difference for me. Thanks for all you do here.


    June 22, 2013 at 8:45 am

  22. I think tattoos are simply beautiful – live – works of art moving with complicated intriguing stories yet to be told. Your photos give them voice.
