Zachary's Photographic Ink

Earlier this year, I met Zachary outside of Penn Station. He had a pretty interesting sleeve and I took some photos to share on Tattoosday.

I asked Zachary what the tattoo image was from, he explained:
"... It's actually a friend of mine ...It's a photograph that i took ... in 2003 or 4 and then I fucked up the contrast a little bit, then I brought it into the tattoo artist, handed it to her and she ... I honestly think she's the best tattoo artist I've come into contact with in New York, and I've looked a lot."
The artist in question is Andreana Verona at Supernova Tattoo in Astoria, Queens. There's a nice profile of Andreana here on The Huffington Post blog.

It's a spectacular tattoo, with amazingly lifelike texture, almost as if a frame of film was transposed onto Zachary's flesh. The top border appears as a strip of film folding over on the photo. It is really wonderfully done.

Thanks to Zachary for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
