Jamie Siever's Tattooed Parents

Philadelphia photographer, Jamie Siever, has a body of work that is awwww worthy: the tattooed family portarits with beautiful newborns (and pregnant bellies) cradled in decorated arms. Jamie, who also photographs the unadorned, explains the spark behind this work:

From the very first time I photographed a tattooed mother with her newborn baby, I was hooked. I love the striking contrast of a tattooed parent's inked skin against their new baby's pristine skin. I love to see the arms of a tattooed daddy tickling his son, or a child peeking around her tattooed mama's calves.

Jamie was so inspired by the tattoo stories that a blog was born complete photos and interviews with Phillie tattoo artists. The portraits of tattooists working are less cute but pretty cuddly nonetheless depending on your taste.
