A man chooses, A slave obeys

A photograph I took using the Canon EOS 450D with 18-55mm standard lens in RAW. I used CS4 to implement the chain on the wrist. Would have used my other wrist but it already has a tattoo on! Anyway, this is based on the game "Bioshock". The main character has these on both his wrists and can signify a few things. I'm sure those of you who have played it know what I'm talking about!

Thanks & Enjoy

Wow it came out with alot of fine quality here and even the tattoo itself looks so very real, still wondering if one day to to get a tattoo like that myself, lol.

Wonderful way to treat the main character from Bioshock and yes those chains mean alot to so many of the many amazing things that make up the entire game, hats off to your work here RCBrock.

Should had it fade out more... like do it in ball point pen then give it a wash to look like a worn old tattoo. lol

Ahhhhhh, RAW shooting is so beautiful when it creates images like this *.*
I love the focus on this and the overall darkness really gives it the right feeling.

Awesome photo.

Woulda worked better if you'd just drawn it on your arm in black pen... Looks too detailed for a rough tattoo. *shrugs* Nice otherwise, though.

Yep was thinking that! Might give it a try at some point if i can find a black pen... Finding a writing utensil in my mess of a room is a big job haha.
Thanks for the comment!

Haha I'm torn between this and the Red Hot Chili Pepper's asterix on my wrist! I have the FF for the Foo Fighters on my other!
