Tattooed Humans of New York Part One

The following photographs need no introduction, as they come from New York Times bestselling author Brandon Stanton's world famous blog Humans Of New York(@humansofny). The highly praised outlet has shared thousands of stories since its start in 2010. Below is a very small yet still significant snippet of New York City's tattooed individuals, photographed and quoted by Stanton. Not all of the HONY are speaking of their ink, but the images certainly capture it. Their stories are saddening, uplifting, humorous and relatable–a box of Kleenex® at arm's reach is recommended.
