It's very popular, but I am at a loss as to why people extensively tattoo their bodies. I wonder how they are going to feel in a couple of decades when their skin may not be the same size! I participated in the global photo walk last month and while we walked through St Peter Port in Guernsey most of us took the opportunity to dodge in and out of shops and other places of business. The tattoo parlour was near our start point so this guy's legs were photographed a lot. He was having all of his arms done!

While it may not be to my personal taste, I think you'll agree it's intricate, so pretty good for this week's challenge.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. I so agree with you when the body is covered… and what will it look like down the road in a few years?
    I do however like the little one that is out of sight or maybe the meaningful signature of your parent… that is somewhat hidden.
    I do not have a tattoo … but have seen some tasteful ones done in a tasteful manner.
    and no… I am still not getting one. PAINFUL!
    Great picture of Intricate.

  2. I’m with you and just don’t get it. Twenty years down the road, no one will be able to figure out what’s on his legs. It’ll just be a big blob of colors. Good subject for the prompt.

  3. A young man I worked with explained to me in great detail once the process of having his half-sleeve done. If I had ever been inclined to get a tattoo that would have put me right off! Squirming in horror….

  4. Wow, that’s very intricate, indeed! 🙂 I’m actually a big fan of tattoos – but not on me, I just like admiring it on other people. I think I’m too fickle minded to have something so permanent such as tattoos 🙂
