As the train approached, there was not much time for discussion. I gave her my card and asked if I could take a picture of the tattoo. She consented:
Even though the top of the wolf headdress is covered by fabric, you can still see what a stunning tattoo this is.
I did not get the name of the woman who shared the tattoo, but she did have time to credit her artist, Marc Fischer (@marcfischertattooist) who works out of PechSchwarz Tattoo (@pechschwarztattoo) in Berlin.
I would add that this seems an appropriate tattoo to share on this special day, July 31, for we are marking our 9th anniversary today. Nine years blogging about tattoo spotted on the streets of New York City!
It is exactly for encounters like this, a brief exchange of praise and information about someone's tattoo, that this site was conceived and it is the friendliness and willingness of strangers to share that has sustained us over the years.
I humbly thank all of our contributors, and all of our fans, who continue to support and sustain this little tattoo blog as we march onward toward our tenth anniversary next summer.
