Mari's Unusual Ink

Every so often, a Tattoosday post goes bust.

Despite amazing potential, the subject is in a hurry and, for whatever reason, I am never able to fully follow-up with the individual and we are left with a skeleton of a post.

This one's not so bad, however. I met Mari in Herald Square. I believe she is a photographer, hailing from Brazil, but now living in New York.

I took two pictures of her tattoos and then emailed some follow-up questions.

I did receive a response, written in Portuguese, that had an attachment that looked suspiciously like a virus.

So, we're going with what we have and perhaps Mari will follow-up and fill in the gaps, or perhaps not.

Mari has this tattoo on her right shin, a piece of art that her friend Wagner Viana aka GORDO designed (see his MySpace page here):

She also has this fascinating tattoo on her left leg, representing the different sizes of photographic paper.

As a photographer, perhaps she finds this useful to her vocation.

See an example of another practical "tat-tool" here.

The work was all inked in Brazil.

Thanks to Mari for sharing her tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
