Tattoos & Boudoir

I love visually stunning tattoos. They can tell a story about who you are, who or what you love, and it gives the outside world a glimpse at the sort of personality you might have. Perhaps I love tattoos so much because I don’t have any myself, but whatever the reason, I always love taking photos of women with ink.

I once did a photo session with a girl who had a gorgeous tattoo on her back, she asked me if I could please edit out her tattoo in post processing. I was so disappointed, but it was a good lesson to me that not everyone is proud of their body art, so I now ask all of my tattoo’d clients if they are okay with me photographing their tattoos. Sometimes I’m met with a scoff, and “Yeah why wouldn’t you?” and other times I’m told they would prefer their tattoos weren’t in the pictures. Here are just a few pictures to show you how great tattoos and boudoir photography go together. So before your next lingerie photo shoot, consider if you really want to cover those inked stories.
