Do You Have Any Tattoos?

There are lots of tattoos in Austin and so tattoo parlors are needed to tend to the inked arms, legs, torsos, etc. I swear someday I'm going to start asking inked strangers to let me photograph their designs for this blog. Meanwhile I snap pictures of the signage for the establishments. Ever wonder how we came to call them tattoo 'parlors?' This place is on S. First.


  1. My hubby is a local tattoo artist. Over the years of him being an artist, I have seen some unique and sometimes odd peices of art plastered on peoples bodies.

    Most the tattooed people I know would love showing off their art to your camera. :-)

  2. I'm sure you are right. I'm just always shy about asking. Must get FFP to do it!

  3. Hey Forrest, will you snap the 65th birthday present lizard tattooed on my wrist? (He's a symbol of good luck and renewal, you know.) I'd love to have a shot of it, but have tried and can't do it myself.
