Well-known Ukiah tattoo artist Lyle Tuttle
asked me to take his photo holding a tattoo machine he built himself. The photo was meant to copy one that had been taken six years ago. I was happy to comply.
We did three sessions, taking dozens of similar photos. One of them is shown above, with a Photoshopped background of a nice Ukiah sunset. Another photo, however, found its way to a billboard-sized ad that appeared at many locations in Southern California, as Mr. Tuttle informed me later.
