Some things fade faster than you would believe
Some memories sway your thoughts for a while
Yet some might be etched into your skull so deeply they'll never grow pale
Sliding deeper and deeper into disaster
Don't want you to see the state I'm in
Where do I end, where do you begin?


And yes, her tattoo is real. :)

I've never seen a set of tattoos that were quite so complimentary to a woman's curves as this. It's amazing.

The picture is seriously cool, too. I've tried repeatedly to get effects like this myself, but I never seem to be able to pull them off. I'm very envious.

hey,
Just noticed these posted. I love the new photos. I like how they are darker than the first ones from the shoot. Seen as the first ones were when i was in love and now everything has changed. I like how these images reflect that. Not sure if that was your intention but thats how i see them.

Thank you again for going back to these. xx

hey hun, a few more will drop out of this shoot, I went back and was surprised at how many I could salvage. I made them darker as a result of knowing about the break up, thought they would go alongside the feelings etc involved.

Hope you are well xx

This has the feel of an old time nude photo but the tattoo gives it a modern twist. I like the juxtaposition of elements. Don't know if that's what you intended but I like it ^.^

And that is some serious ink. Maybe I'm weird but I'd love to see a front/side/back shot of the entire design.

she appears in more of my gallery, in fact my main image on my front page is of her tattoo. I'll post some more, got loads of her.

The pose and where you placed her is probably my favorite thing about this. And the simplicity of your background keeps from distracting attention away from your subject and seems to fit the picture wonderfully.
Great choice for your model. If you had chosen one without the beautiful tattoo I don't think the image would have been as interesting. I take it she's is into Egyptian things.

ask her, maybe you can borrow it - nothing wrong with a bit of flesh sharing - would make a nice coat!
