    Aye, they are. One of these days, I have to actually commit the time to getting the rest of my planned ones done.

    I’ve never been a fan of tattoos, but every once in a while I find something that really strikes my sense of artistic awe. I love the pic here.

    I don’t generally dislike them, I just rarely find them to enhance, rather than distract from, the individual. (I’m probably weird that way.)

    Beautiful tattoos. I don’t have a clear favourite, but the picture of the lady in the forest is the most fun as a picture. The tattoos become one with the foliage.

    It took me quite long time to realize that black people also have ink tattoos (I thought that they wouldn’t be visible enough to make sense).
