See My New Tattoo!


Read more about how Wendy found yet another way to showcase her analogue love!

Hi my name is Wendalls/ Wendy, I live in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. Wellington is small but mighty!! I have been mad on Lomography for a while now. I have a good supply of Lomo cameras and gladly show them off when I can and try to avoid rolling my eye’s when someone asks me if thats a digital camera I have in my hot little hand…

I had my first exhibition last year with 12 of my best Lomography shots on display, It was a awesome night with a awesome turnout (the headache i had the next day was well worth it). So the next item on my list of Lomography things i should do was a getting a tattoo, a tattoo of my favorite Lomography camera! Which is the LC-A+, the camera that started it all off for me, the camera I love like a family member and treat with a massive amount of respect. Check it out!

    Wendalls/Wendy - If this is will eventually reach a point when you regret doing that... as a father trying to persuade an 18yr old that tattoos on old people look terrible...

    I agree with gregmarshall. In 10 years time (if not sooner) he/she will regret this and think this looks awful!

    i think maybe i love it! It is personal and funky - its not for me personally - but that's because my fave camera is a tlr - and that would look rubbish!

    @gregmarshall: Tattoos done in the old days were often done with inferior equipment and things really have changed alot. I have tattoos that are more than 10 years old and they still look like they did when I got them carved into my skin. Of course they will change with my physique, but if I ever get to be 70 years old, I think I will have better things to do than worry about wrinkled tattoos ;-)

    I think it's going to be great when that generation crosses over and all of a sudden you will see tons of old people with sleeves of tattoos.

Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
