A Gift for the Tattooed Lady
August 12, 2013 1:27 PM Subscribe
I have a friend who is very proud of her tattoos.
I would like to get her a special gift. My first thought was a photography session, but her brother is a photographer and has already given her such sessions in the past.
I had a crazy idea and I was wondering if there's any reality to it: Is there any such thing as scanning tattoos?
For instance, like pressing the body part with the tattoo against a flatbed scanner and creating a high-quality artistic print of the tattoo itself?
Or does this separate the tattoo for the reality of its place on her body in such a way to invalidate the whole purpose of it?
If this is a stupid idea, can you suggest others?
