What is a beautiful work of art? A person with tattoos. There are some very talented Artist that showcase their skills and talent, on a person’s body. What attracts me the most, is a woman with creative colorful tattoos. When I see a beautiful work of Art on a Woman’s body, it AMAZES me with Awe, in many cases. Being a photographer, I just want to photograph the Art work that has been created on her body.
Please don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy photographing the Art that has been created on men as well. However, I’ve noticed over the years, that men tend to do more black outlined and/or black colored tattoos, on their bodies. Women, with the majority their tattoos, take a more colorful approach and that attracts and appeals to me. I admire the detail, the creativity, and the time a person will go under the needle, gun, to have Art created on their body. I know some of it is painful; However, as the saying goes, “No Pain, No Gain”.
To all of the Great Tattoo Artist in the World and those that become their “Beautiful Canvas”, my hat goes off to you. I, we and all those that enjoy tattoos, want to say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you”, to the people that have them, create them and to the tattoo artist.
