powerful pose and image love the tats !!
thanks jane! Yeah… raph’s tatts are pretty cool
Everything about this photo works so well. Great job and interesting description (and tat).
thanks Rikki :) Apparently one of the tatts offers protection from being stabbed with a knife…and so far it’s worked!
the pose is amazing Matt .. perfect lighting too .. very powerful.
thanks deborah… great to hear from you :)
Gorgeous work matt, love your lighting and the pose is amazing, well done
Thank you :)
Your image would make a great addition to the Tattoo, Piercing and Body Modification group
thanks … will check it out!
Stunning work Matt! I am fascinated by those tattoos.
thanks melissa… yeah they were fascinating. You can get also get thai tatts that represent ‘attack’ rather than defense… although Buddhist monks wont do these style of tatts. For example I know one guy (pro fighter) that has an arrow on his fist representing speed / accuracy (so his ‘weapon’ hits its target)
Such beautiful inspiring work.
Lovely pose and lighting, just beautiful ! xoxo
