Ernie Bustamante

Inked Photography does not discriminate about the models and photos I accept. I will do a shoot with all models of all shapes, sizes, and color. Professional, alternative models and aspiring models are always welcome. This includes gothic, pin-up, fetish, punk, tattooed/pierced, etc. My goal as a photographer has always been to capture the art of tattoos and the female & male body. Add to the beauty of the female body the artwork of tattoos and you have a true masterpiece. More and more women are getting tattoos these days, ranging from the gothic to the house mom. I want images to range from focusing on the artwork to the personality of the women and men, from showcasing the woman in her barest form to the highest fashion while always emphasizing the beauty of the female form. In 2009 my photography took a huge turn for the better. It marked the first year of publication for Inked Photography. I also started traveling and shooting tattoo conventions in the US and Central America. Costa Rica, Bolivia, Panama City, and Mexico.
