My Blog__ 43 year old tattoos.
I sat with this man on a bench one day this summer. I had seen him before and really wanted to take a picture of him. We chatted for a while, mostly about where he grew up, what t.v. shows he watched and his tattoos. He showed me the ones on his chest and arms--got them all in 1967, each costing him 5 dollars. I listened as I tried to get up the nerve to take out my camera. I finally asked him if I could take a shot and he replied shyly that he's break my lens. Since that wasn't a 'no', I whipped the cam out and took these two shots.
