Fathering. by adeux Fathering. by adeux
*******UNFORTUNATELY, I have had to watermark and report numerous pages using this photo without my consent and claiming it as their own. This is unacceptable, and very pathetic. To those who steal others' works- find your own talent.

This photo is my property and may NOT, under ANY circumstance, be used without my written consent.

John with his son, Johnny V. I loved the edginess of John's tattoos mixed with the softness of Johnny's youth.

Feedback greatly appreciated.
Download for detail.

**EDIT** THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO'S VIEWED, COMMENTED, OR FAVORITED THIS PHOTO. =] :heart:



*****Update**** AHHHHHH!! Holy shit the DD came out of nowhere. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH DA community for supporting my work. I love you all and I appreciate this more than I can even express!******

Daily Deviation

Fathering. by ~adeux ( Featured by leaf-lover )
:iconisamon:
This photograph is simply stunning and really makes an impact on the viewer

There are so many contrasts like with the tattooed arms against the white arms of the child that also - gives me at least - the idea of purity vs. rebellion
or whatever you want to call it.
Although I have some pictures like this before, it's the position and how
close you came with your models that makes the difference.
I also love how you seem to have done a little tint of dark blue instead of
making it black and white.

This just really incredible! Lovely job.
What do you think?

Wonderful! I love the tenderness of this moment. As a tattooed chick it's great to see tattooed parents, we've gotta break the stereotype that we are bad people!

This is simply stunning.
I can almost feel the love between them, the soft dady's touch, emotion that flows.
