It’s been awhile since I’ve really shot anything. So it felt good to get out this weekend with a bag of gear over my shoulder, fighting my way through the Manila traffic to reach the World Trade Center in Pasay on September 26th to spend a few hours shooing at Dutdutan XV Philippines Tattoo Expo. This was a huge (and very well run) event, easily 2 or 3 times larger than the Hong Kong Tattoo Convention that I shot last year. Unfortunately I couldn’t stick around long enough to see Maria Ozawa, but I did see a lot of talented artists at work, heard a couple of good bands, watched a skateboarding competition and saw quite a few lovely ladies in attendance. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the day:
There’s a lot more pictures at the Dutdutan XV gallery page, please take a look!
