    These are some pics I took of my friend tattooing. I meant for the photos to be a little over exposed, and I was trying to compensate for some crappy lighting. C&C please!

    Same here :)


    The girl looks in pain in #4 because of the way she's holding that guy's hand. I like #1 best.

    I personally think that color would have been too much for this series. Just my .02

    I hate to say it, but the over-exposure doesn't seem to do it. I mean, crappy lighting is crappy lighting; over-exposure doesn't seem to fix it. I like the idea, though, and could be a great series if exposure was closer.

    I'm too fickle to get one! That and I wouldn't want another addiction. ;)

    i chose black and white mostly because of the lighting and i felt that these shots looked more dramatic in B&W.

    i am going back to the shop soon and i'm going to try to get better lighting and hopefully not end up with crappy exposure.

    thanks for the replies guys!

    Of course everything is more dramatic in B&W. Mostly because the world is in colour. Poor lighting or not seems like the shots deserve colour. And maybe a closer look at the ink. Right now it just looks like she is getting surgery.
