Everybody who takes their craft seriously--whether they paint or sculpt or weld or write--has a unique voice, a distinct flavor. If they're really good, you know them immediately; there's no need to see their signature on their work...you just know it's them...
This is my son-in-law doing the work he does. He is a painter (the artistic kind, not the wall kind) and a tattoo artist. (Jason is gifted as well as unique. He usually wears a dress shirt and tie when he works, but this photo was taken at his home.)
(I asked Cathy C. Hall's husband if it was okay with him if I got a tattoo. He said, "Sure, as long as you're married to someone else besides me!")
I've had the tattoo for a month now, have gotten used to it, and am no longer startled when I see something there on my flesh...something that was not there for the first 50+ years of my life.
