    I just got back from getting two new tattoos! Wanted to share it, I know the photos aren't the best.


    Right leg......

    Left leg.......

    The color is from my skin still being red and irritated. Once it heals it will be black and grey and the white highlights will show up better. If your curious about the meaning of the tattoo, here are a couple of links.....

    ok, the tattoo looks devilishly rugged and eyecatching, congratulations on that. BUT, as photographs, I'm sorry to say you hacked them. :)

    for skin tones, hair textures etc its always advised that you shoot in natural light - a direct blow with a flash without a diffuser destroys the natural feeling of photographs, believe me. with manual lighting, it could have been great if you made it a gradient style, you know, visible on one side and growing dark on the other.

    thanks for sharing !

    Stranger- The more literal meaning is "come get them". Thank you for the complement on the tattoo I will make sure that I pass it on to my artist.

    Sayambhu- thank you for the compliments as well. As for the photographs I probably could have tried a little harder, but let me tell you it's pretty hard trying to take pictures of your calves from the side. You can't look in the viewer so it's sort of a guess and shoot. Once it heals I will try for a re shoot. I will definitely heed your advice next time I try.
