Last week I accompanied my friend Susan to get a tattoo to hold her hand and take some pictures. It was an awesome experience - her biggest yet and first in a while. The emotion you see is deeper than the pain of the tattoo, and it was a privilege to be there for her. This is the kind of photography I want to do for the rest of my life - to share a moment in real life, nothing orchestrated or manufactured by me, just real people being real.
This makes me laugh :)
So, to end the day, being the great photographer that I am, I forgot to take an actual picture of the finished product. Seriously. I only took one on Susan's phone. So here it is.
