Harry McCotty and His Rose Tattoo

Harry McCotty is the real deal. During the summer, he is a stone foremen. During the winter, he splits wood in his backyard outside of East Dorset Vermont. Regardless of the season, he wears wool.

Although born and raised in southern Vermont, Harry received formal training as a topiarist in London, England in his early twenties.

Harry got this Rose tattoo during a 5 year stint in traveling throughout Europe in his mid 20s.

Great stuff mate. I see from an earlier post of yours that I've got the same camera, so really pleased to see what it can do in a capable pair of hands.

Plaid on plaid just kills it, and is something you never see this far south!

Hello well let me add that a tattoo is a very important decision cause you will have it for a long time and not sure correct me if and wrong cause a rose for a man is not a good decision cause is too girly in my personal opinion .

Rose tattoo is the balance between softness and boldness as when any kind of nihilist desire is born to step aside. The dark beauty lies within this momentary black rose tattoo to set a pure trust to feel the new look towards life.
