Earlier this month, I met Steve on the D train, as we headed home to Brooklyn.
He had a veritable panorama of fall foliage on his left arm and he happily shared his autumnal tattoos with us here at Tattoosday.
It only seemed fitting that, as summer has ended, we celebrate the new season with some fall colors.
Behold, Steve's sleeve o' leaves:
The eleven maple leaves on Steve's arm were all inked free hand by Mark Harada at Manhattan's East Side Ink over four sittings.
Steve acknowledges that the leaves changing colors represent a change, and these colorful symbols remind him that change is good.
Happy Autumn to all! And thanks to Steve for sharing his fallen maple leaves with us here on Tattoosday!
