In fact, Ryan, who is this particular contributor, and I share a common bond, which is that we have both been tattooed by the same artist, Peter Caruso a.k.a. "Brooklyn P," who originally shared his work with us here on the site way back in 2008 here.
Ryan currently has a back piece in progress, but he shared two tattoos from his legs. First, on his right leg, is this work:
This pin-up girl is classic old school Brooklyn ink, based on flash by the legendary artist Tony Polito. Brooklyn P is an admirer of Polito, and even shared a piece that Tony did on him here.
Ryan also has this tattoo of butterflies on his left leg, which is based on a original design by Brooklyn P:
Ryan estimates he has about fifteen tattoos in all.
My tattoo from Brooklyn P is documented here.
Thanks to Ryan for sharing his tattoos with us here on Tattoosday! And thanks again to Brooklyn P, who continues to work hard at keeping that old school style of Brooklyn tattooing alive!
