Getting Inked

Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph my husband getting a tattoo from Donny Manco, owner of New Republic Tattoo in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Donny is an incredible artist and an all around great guy. If you want a tattoo, or know someone who does, I HIGHLY recommend Donny. He is great to work with, and his art is amazing!

As they say, a picture is worth a thousands words, so instead of continuing to ramble on about Donny's awesome work, let's just show it off, shall we?

Kevin, getting psyched up for his new ink...


Donny, working on the outline (Kevin's other tattoo was done by Donny back in August 2010)...


The detail in Donny's art is just incredible. It was fascinating watching him work!...


Donny, hard at work...


Kevin, looking surprisingly happy and relaxed...


This photo is my favorite of the bunch, by far!...


I loved having the opportunity to photograph Kevin getting his tattoo! So, thank you to Donny for being so awesome about having a camera in his face for most of the time that he was working on Kevin!

I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.
