Description
An unidentified woman standing along Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake shows off her tattoos by lifting her tank top. Her body art covers her entire chest, torso, and arms. The tattoos appear to be all black ink, as no shading which would indicate different colors, is visible. She also has numerous piercings; one in her navel, both eyebrows, a septum piercing on her nose, and labret below her bottom lip, as well as a snug piercing on her right ear, and several piercings on her lower earlobes, including flesh tunnels, also known as spools, with two small locks inserted through them. Her haircut of choice is a mohawk. Photograph dated August 24, 1997.
