Q: how to delete from my favorites

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

I have a camera tattooed on my arm. It’s a Leica M8. (I wish I owned it. It’s like $5,000.) I got it on my right forearm because my mom was a job coach growing up and she always told me that tattoos were a NO NO. "You can’t have tattoos at a good job!" And seeing as how I don’t feel like failing at my full time photography business, I decided to get it in the most visible spot so no one else will hire me. I have no degree to fall back on. It’s pressure on me. Plus, if I do fail, I’ll have this curse on my arm for the rest of my life.


I will not fail.

    That is an amazing tatoo that will always have meaning to you for the rest of your life! Isn't that the point of having a tatoo, it's suppose to be something that you carry forever. Beautiful photo with a heartfull meaning behind it.
