Yesterday I was walking around Penn Station during lunch, as is my normal workday routine. I saw quite a few tattoos, but nothing seemed to impress. I was hoping to chance upon something a little more original than flowers, dragons and skulls.
I spotted a young woman talking to a few other people and a few of them had tattoos. I sauntered on over, figuring between them, I'd see something interesting. I wasn't disappointed.
Among the group was Mark, who shared this tattoo on the back of his calf:
Those are mushrooms. More specifically, psilocybin mushrooms, which have hallucinogenic properties.
The artist was the woman I initially spotted, a freelance "underground" tattooist from Oakland, California who gave her name as Steiner Ella.
Thanks to Mark and Steiner for sharing this cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
