If you have a full back tattoo you are investing trust, money and time in equal measure.
It's interesting that as I have shared these tattoo images more and more people have referred to the tattoos as artwork. With that realisation comes an acceptance of the quality of the work and the commitment required of both artist and recipient.
It is hard to appreciate the commitment required to receive and to give this level of artwork without an appreciation that they are art.
The idea that a tattoo can be an impulse is rarely the case.
