im sure this will score low but oh well. i know there are some shadows and the white on the tattoo machine looks blown out. the vibration of it makes it hard to get the clearest shot. i like this pic and hope you do too!

The decision to have a design painted on you or to pick the particular art is an exceptional concept, however without the knowledge of the challenge woudl I find myself placing a keyword like decision on this image? My answer is no. It is one more on the lines of invoking pain or artistry. The blueish green gloves in fact push me into the realm of safety for the artist for they must be careful nowadays.

I see little in the way of composition that would lead me to return to this image unless it was found in a textbook illustrating the tools or the need for protection in the industry, however there is a subtle balance in the choice of crop and the positioning of elements that indicates a great eye.

Perhaps to better illustrate the decision, the image should have been of the discussion ensuing as the person and artist looked over the many options hanging on the wall or in the book. That image would have invoked a sense of impending thought and a decision to be made on the part of the people the image told the story about. For me unfortunately, I find a weak link to the story of decision in this image and find that compared to the other entries I rate this at a 4.

are you saying it's a decision to get a tattoo?

I don't feel that the image conveys instantly recognizable decision.

All the different aspects of this image come together to tell the complete story, which is nice (not a sterile studio shot). Might be cool to have it shot from a little higher up so we could see more of the tattoo-in-progress. The composition (crop?) works really well for this.

link to challenge is not as strong as it could be but still better than most. getting a tattoo definitely does represent a decision...

Looks like it's a little bit too late to be making the decision now. Post a finished photo after the challenge!

Good shot but both the shot and title arent done in a way that truly depict the challenge.
