Tattoos and Cigarettes

Hands, Tattoos and a Cigarette

I walked past this young man as he sat inside the doorway smoking his cigarette. I turned around, went back and started a conversation, asking if I could take an image of his hands. Those hands with tattoos and the cigarette did not need a face of body to add to the story. They have their own story.

    It’s what you don’t see that makes this very interesting. Great shot, Monte.

    Well, you know how much I like street photography. Glad you stopped, talked and made this picture!

      Sometimes I fail to speak to people on the street. I go by intuition.

    I like the tattoos on my body and photography is also my passion. I love clicking new pics of tattoos on people.
