"THE TOWER SESSIONS" A working portfolio of the artists of Tower Classic Tattooing. The process of getting inked happens over a period of sessions. The complexity of the tattoo dictates the length and number of sessions. This series is a continuation of the sessions through the camera lens. Tower Classic Tattooing -- Sean Baltzell / Owner Digital Retouching -- Curt von Diest H&M -- Brandie Marsden
Each model was photographed in a private hour session, similar to their tattoo session. I talked with the model about their ink, it's importance and meaning to them. Then I started my session.
The selected images were printed on leather - skin on skin. The result was a subdued, textural look that merged the body and ink as one on the canvas.
