Art for arts sake, or not?

By ladynewbury
I came across this lovely lady at a country show. She gave me permission to take this photograph, and I wanted to ask her if there is a story behind her tattoos, there usually is one isn't there?...but it wasn't the time or the place.

Thank you for the kind comments and votes on yesterday's 'get off ant' and of course to Peter (handlerstudio) for the UA. I am very grateful.

Not everyone can wear a bald head!

the only difference between tattooed persons and non-tattooed persons is that tattooed persons don't care if you're not tattooed

I'd be so cold with a bald head. And that must hurt, sticking a needle in ones skull. Great shot though.

How true Leo, my daughter said a similar thing to me only a short time ago.

I agree Fred, I had to pluck up a bit of courage, before I approached her.

I quite agree Sandy, I don,t like pain. Pam

Can't argue with that Jenn, it suited her, but sadly some don't get a choice.

Lets hope that is the reason Colleen. Pam

The reason is probably the cause of her baldness in the first place.
Perhaps chemotherapy or a skin condition, otherwise her tattoo would quickly be overgrown.
In those circumstances then why not? Anything that makes her feel better.

But ... what a super shot. You were in the right place at the right time!

Really brave of her, I don't think I could sit and have that done to me. AN excellent shot.
