What do you think? Of this work in ink? #2

The technology behind tattoos has made some quiet progress since the days of a guitar string, dipped in charred paper soaked in water, driven by the motor of a cassette player.

I have seen so really nice works of art. It is kind of hard to see what these ones are but they are a bold statement.
Ayush Basu: I was a fair bit away and had to zoom in a lot to get this shot. I too could not make it out clearly.

Very clever isn't it
Ayush Basu: The person who came up with the technology? Yes. Some of the people sporting ill conceived tattoos? Perhaps not so much grin
The new technology appears to be very clever equipment for the tattoo artist to have at his fingertips.
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, I imagine much more control and versatility in images to be tattooed. Thank you Scotia

Wow Ayush, you seem to know the history of a subject that I do not know the first thing about. Personally I do not appreciate tattos, but I know that a lot of people do.
Ayush Basu: Just a bit of useless trivia, Chad grin
I'm seeing more & more young people sporting tattoos, Ayush, and not just small discrete ones, either. I can just imagine the time it must take to create something like the one you've posted here.
Ayush Basu: I would guess this took several sittings over a period of about two months. What I gathered from an acquaintance is that, basically it is a kind of a wound, the tattoo needle is actually inflicting micro wounds on to the skin. In a short while some kind of a mechanism kicks in which, in a way, slows or stops the effectiveness of the tattoo process. [If I understood the explanation correctly]
I am not a tattoo person myself
Ayush Basu: I would imagine so Chantal, and you are not alone in that.
Wow! Is that the way it was done?
Ayush Basu: Yes! Apparently in prisons back in the 1960s and 70s, Tom
Superb details Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you Richard.
Some are really amazing - this is a great image though - terrific candid, and I love the detail on that ink!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Elizabeth. Some tattoos are quite well done and do have a strong story behind them.

Maybe the one reason why I wouldn't like tattoos on myself, is, that it will be like wearing the same clothes every day.
Ayush Basu: That is a refreshing view point Louis. smile
nice artistry ... but not a fan of tattoos ....
Ayush Basu: I see them around a lot, so just decided to make a short series out of it.
Good patterns!

Great composition.

I much prefer the natural skin of the arm at the front of the photo.
Ayush Basu: I see what you mean. The dense tattoo certainly imparts a very different look and feel to the skin tone.

If I was tattooed, Ayush, I would want my family to have me skinned when I die...
