Self Tattoo

My subject (who would like to remain anonymous) thought it would be a great idea if we did a photo shoot of him giving himself a tattoo with just a needle and black ink. It appears he’s done this before – on his right knee is the birthday of his daughter and now on his left knee is his only son’s. Happy birthday!

I chose to edit all the photos black and white, to give them an old feeling.
