This is another shot from my photowalk with Van Sutherland during SWSW a couple of weeks ago. However, this isn't the same tattoo parlor that was represented in my previous post of the guy standing outside a tattoo parlor. No, this is a different place. 6th Street has multitudes of bars and clubs which makes for a good location for quite a few places to get tatted up. Makes sense because I have a feeling most people get tatted when they've had a few cocktails.
As I said, this particular establishment is on 6th street and when Van and I went up the stairs to see what may be happening, it was completely dead. The two artists - at least I think that's who they were - were sound asleep on two couches in the place. Maybe business didn't pickup until later? I don't know, but we decided to leave and on the way downstairs, the "TATTOO" on the wall made for a cool shot. Both of us shot it. You can see Van's here.
There's always something to shoot on 6th Street. I'm gonna have to get out there again soon to try and get more unique stuff.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, this is just a straight up shot. No HDR on this one. Just little Nik Color Efex, curves and some masking.
Thanks for stopping by.
