a friend's hair salon did some hair-do's for a photoshoot today -- one of the models that I know dropped by my place for a few quick extra photos while her hair and make-up were still intact.

    I like the first one. It fits her the best IMO.

    two more that I like, but missed in the original editing session:

    Pretty Lady. The tats not so much.

    these days, pretty hard to find anyone under 30 who DOESN'T have tattoos, or so it seems. Though I think hers are pretty cool.

    My kids think tats are dumb.

    well, when I started on this tattoo project, so did I. I've photographed maybe 60 people now for their tats, and think I understand why people get them a bit better. And definitely can appreciate the artistry in a really well done one.

    I still have no desire to get one myself, but I no longer leap to conclusions about people when I see that they have ink. And a good tattoo will now capture my attention in a positive way.

    Which I must admit, hasn't always been the case.

    The only conclusions I reach are. Boy that's gonna look different 20 yrs from now.

    You're assuming that 20 years from now, she'll come to the nursing home to let you see it. :)

    20 years from now, she's hoping to be a cop (in training now). The uniform probably won't show much of her back.

    She'll probably lose the eyebrow piercing, then. It'll probably get ripped off in SD training or if she has a bad takedown. Just basing this on watching female rugby players and martial artists have to tape over their eyebrow studs, else it cause injury. I could be wrong.

    Odd thing, but I have a bigger problem with facial piercings than with tattoos. But that's just me.

    I actually dislike the facial piercings more than the tattoos, also -- and I hear more people express regrets about them than I do about tattoos. They get old quickly for some who try them.

    it's always a dilemma about whether to photoshop them out of pictures I take -- sometimes I do, sometimes I don't depending on the conversation that I have with the model during the session. I usually (not always, I admit) am going for a more classic look/style than many of the women I photograph are used to -- that's why they come to me -- and in many cases, the piercings detract from that. But ultimately, it's their face and their pictures. I can only suggest.

    in the case of the model above, i think the eye stud doesn't detract too much. it's the little chin and cheek piercings that bug me the most. never decorative enough to complement the face, always large enough to detract from it.

    One of those nights in Yellowstone with the Monkey, when you both have had too much to drink, you may get your wish.
