Tattooed Man, in Herald Square

Tattoo guy, nyc Photo by myself in Herald Square, around 34th Street and Sixth Avenue.

A fellow with a lot of tattoos was nice enough to stop and pose for me, the other day.

I was crossing the street in Herald Square, when I noticed a guy with a ton of tattoos walking in front of me. I asked whether I could take his photo, and nicely agreed.

'I have tattoos on 75% of my body', he said, and all of them have personal significance.

I didn't ask about the 25% that wasn't tattooed, haha! He thought I was ridiculous because I wouldn't be able to decide on a tattoo, and so I don't have any.

I don't think this guy wants to get into a discussion of what's ridiculous, but somebody that chiseled (buff, ripped, hunky, six-packy) doesn't get challenged much, I'd guess. Once again, advantage your gender . . . lol
