Engaged to be Married

Engaged to be Married

Roses Are Red

Tattoo Diptych

This is Jennifer and Ted. They are engaged to be married, so congrats to that. Jennifer lives in Bro (North of Stockholm), and Ted in Handen, where I met them a few days ago. The couple was easy to spot, so I zoomed in on them for a chat and some photos. Turns out that Jennifer is a tattoo artist at Svea Tattoo in Stockholm. Her boyfriend Ted enjoys painting and is a possible future tattoo artist. Jennifer's body is an ever growing work of art, as you can see on the second photo with the red roses and on the diptych where you can see a skull and a devil's bull! Jennifer designs the tattoos herself and leaves the tattooing to her boss Erica at the studio. And as you can guess, most of the unfinished tattoos on Ted's body have been made by his girlfriend.

My old mother had a saying; "As He made them, so He matched them".
Good luck to them.

Thanks people. I really enjoy people that will stick out from a crowd. I'm still a bit sad about not being able to meet The Guardian Angel. He is the guy married to Gisela, the woman with the head tattoo that I met a couple of years ago.
