Animation: Tattoo Artist at Work

GIF, Tattoo, Okinawa


One I've Never Done Before


Today's photography took place inside a tattoo parlor and, it was an experience.

In the past, many of my friends, went to get their bodies inked.  Not me.

It used to be, folks went into some dark and dingy, back room to get tattooed.

These days, the places are more like hospital operating rooms.

Everything is spotless shiny and, this room had three operating tables.

The staff, talk to the customers and, sound just like real doctors.

I was thinking, the people would be chewing tobacco and poking people with sewing needles.

They have some fancy ink guns that hum and, disposable ink cups for each client.

The only alcohol in the building, is the stuff they use for preparations and cleaning.
