The Decisive Moment

This tattoo was a trip to put together. The fella that got it is a pretty damned great photographer. The photos below are some of his work.(Click on the photos to go to his site) His idea for the tattoo was to represent the decisive moment as it was established by photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson. Then we decided to blend that image with other photos that he liked. The ghosted hand and black and white photo are to show the idea of stealing or capturing the moment(s) throughout the tattoo. To take Dan's ideas and work them into a tattoo was without a doubt a challenge, but I'm really glad he gave me the oportunity to work this out.

If you have the chance, check out Dan's website. As of now his portfolio part is in the works, but if you click on the "recent" button it will take you to a collection of his photos. Damn fine work!
