I’ve been uploading less and less tattoo photos in this blog, it seems. In reality, I’m just being “picky” on what to show here, as I want to make sure to wait for healed tattoos and then, re-take the photos.

As you might know, when tattoos are fresh they seem to look really awkward and difficult to read with all the shining, peculiar to a newly finished session.

And obviously, when the customer walks out from the door, I have no guarantee I would be able to see that person ( and consequently, the tattoo ) once again.

I’m very thankful with timing when I can manage to meet them again, and get the right moment ( with right natural light, right weather, etc ) to take the photos of the tattoos.

Some take few years. But, I enjoy the encounter.

It’s a good opportunity to re-visit some ideas and ideals from a quite distant, but at the same time, ageless moment from both sides. Experiences and expressions that will be forever present.
