BSM: Serious Art

Getting someone else's name inked on your body, I think, is a HUGE deal. I don't have any tats, nor does my husband. I don't have many 'inked' friends, so when I caught a glimpse of our good friend donning a tat on his back, I quickly snapped a shot. This type of photo is not usually what I post, however, I think it's worth sharing. I don't think there's a more meaningful tattoo, than that of your child.

Gorgeous shot, Andrea. See now if I would have waited to get a tat of Mia's name, maybe I wouldn't regret mine so much :)

So brilliant in B&W

Great shot! I don't have any tats, but have always secretly longed for one . . . I don't know why . . .

This is amazing Andrea! You really capured his soul here...it says so much. The light and clarity of the photo are beautiful, and the tender-hearted daddy shines through.

Cool shot. I like he black and white, it really draws you to the tattoo.

Jen said...

Beautiful shot. I agree with everyone else the black & white is perfect.

I have to agree. Should I decided on a tattoo it would encompass all the names of my children and be special for us. :) Nice shot.

My husband and I both have a tattoo in the same place with our daughters name. I love it. Great shot in b/w.

This is great! Sometimes I think that tattoos are totally overdone, but this one is quite tasteful and beautiful.

I had a dad who once took the footprints of his new baby and was gone for a few hours. And when he came back he had every crease of that baby's prints tattooed on his shoulder!

There's something about a Daddy who has his children's names on him....

I'm not a huge fan of tattoos myself, but that is so nice. I bet he's a great daddy.

Awesome shot! I'm not a big tat person either, but you really can't go wrong with your child's name!

Oh, and I LOVE your new blog header..it's awesome!!!
