Initial / Impression (2 things challenge)

The initial impression I had was of an unusually feminine tatoo impressed on a pretty young woman. When I asked if I could take her photo, she was very sweet and somewhat surprised that I thought her pretty.

Superb portrait!

Steffe said...

That she is and she has an interesting tattoo. Nice portrait. Keep them coming.

Naturedigital said...

She surely is pretty and sweet.
And your portrait is complimenting her.

You've captured here the essence of that sweetness. Beautiful job.

Lois said...

I think she is pretty too!

Dear Tash,
It's a beautiful portrait, she is adorable, and I also liked the tatoo, but I could not do it in myself.It's a different and weird feeling to put colours in the skin, my skin...hmmm I don't think so and I'm older for it! LOL
Thanks for you always sweet words in my blog, thanks for your support, you give me good energies!
hugs
Léia

She's a lovely young woman. I don't care for her tattoo or other tattoos but that's just my humble opinion.
Tattoos are forever.

Tash said...

PS - notice the ear expansion ring...I didn't catch it at first. I wonder if she'll like that later on.

Neva said...

I wonder what makes a pretty young women mark her body with such a huge tattoo that obviously had to be expensive....and the expansion ear lobe...wow....that is hard to undo...but then so are tattoos...she is pretty but I am not a fan of tattoos or piercings or the expansionof the nose or ears.....interesting...

Lovely young woman and a lovely portrait!

Almost Precious said...

She is very lovely, but since she seemed surprised that you thought her pretty maybe that explains why she'd mar the beautiful body that she was gifted with. We do tend to be our own worst critics.

A very interesting and, yes, sweet portrait!!! The contradiction of her tatoos and ear expansions to her rather conservative looking top, hair and makeup really makes the photo!!! Very fun!!!

Paula said...

She looks fresh and hopeful in spite of everything. But I can't help imagine what that tatoo is going to look like someday without the firm, young skin as a canvas. For me it would seem like being forced to wear the same item of clothing for a lifetime. :(

Mister Earl said...

Great portrait, Tash. I keep wondering if the woman portrayed in the tattoo is riding a motorcycle.

TheChieftess said...

Paula...you're right on!!! I gave my step son a birthday card with two old gents sitting on a porch telling each other what their tattoos used to look like!!! I never thought of the "getting tired of looking at the same thing" though...very good point!!!

B SQUARED said...

The ears are pretty interesting, as well.

Wanda said...

Yes a very pretty and intersting portrait.

Virginia said...

ONLY Earl would think of that! !!!!

I'm just grateful tattoos weren't popular when I was in my "prime" in college, or I'd be a damn mess today with tattoos going "south" if you get my drift. I hope this pretty girl can keep hers right where they belong!

Gunn said...

Nice portrait.
I have the same thoughts as Paula..

Bibi said...

Impressive tattoo on this pretty girl. I still can't help but wonder what this tattoo will look like waaaaay down the line of years.

What a totally odd combination - a pretty young lady, a photo that must tell a story (her tattoo, that is) and the ear expansion rings. I'd love to listen to her!

Eeyore said...

I guess I'm just too old for this stuff. Nice entry in our challenge.

Vivian said...

Great entry for this week's 2 thing challenge...initial impression.
You have captured her beauty, beautifully! Her tattoo must give people different "initial" first impressions of her, I am sure.
As for me, I have learned not to judge, for I am not the judge or jury of this world. And beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Cathy ~o said...

She is pretty, but I am with a lot of others on wishing she didn't feel the need to do these things to her body. On the other hand...awesome tat!

Alexa said...

I think she's perfectly lovely without the "embellishments." And with? I always wonder what makes someone go to this extreme—but she's still lovely.

Babzy said...

very good portrait zand interesting tatoo ;)
