With the rise of temperatures comes the flaunting of skin, which leads to a vibrant tapestry of body art across the streets of Chicago. Tattoos are an expression of self-identity and individuality. I find them very interesting and particularly appropriate for a Chicago street style website, because Chicago is internationally renowned for its expert tattoo artists, particularly those who work with color.

I find it very fascinating as a street-style photographer that not only do Chicagoans love to bathe themselves in rich, vibrant hues – my recent photo of Jessica comes to mind – but they like to permanently mark their skin with bright colors as well. In contrast Los Angeles is a city well known for its blackwork tattoos (especially cursive text and black and white portraiture) and the New York fashion set loves to drape themselves in black, as a visit to my friend Adam Sinding’s street-style website Le 21eme Arrondissement beautifully reveals.
