I am not 100% on how this photograph would be catagorised so I put it into Glamour Portraits because:
a) It's a portrait of me,
b) Tattoos can be viewed as causing an individual to be more "fashionable than ordinary people". I think this picture portrays me as being "striking in either physical good looks or sexual impact, especially when he/she is enhanced with highly fashionable clothing or makeup" (tattoos?). I like the toning in my triceps and back, and
c) <Insert something here to help further justify my reasoning>

- Smaller tattoo: 'Meiyo' (meaning 'Honour').
Written in Kanji (Japanese Caligraphy). I got this because I believe in it and attempt to hold its ideals true.

- Larger tattoo: Tribal/Celtic design.
Designed by myself when I was 17. I had the outline done in a crappy tattoo studio when I was 18 and had it fixed and filled in a few years ago (in my early-mid 20's).

Very minimal image adjustments were made - The photograph was taken in my room at 2am, so lighting wasn't too crash hot. I increased the brightness about 12%.

Other minor adjustments:
- Added the text in the lower left corner.
- Brushed over a few small skin blemishes to assist in creating a more visibly appealing image.

Any comments/suggestions are more than welcome.
