Photo and caption by Pierre YAMEOGO

11pm in a grocery store (Deli) in Harlem, I'm going to get a sandwich. waiting to place my order. I see someone with tattoos on the forearms, neck .. etc. On his right hand I see "Harlem" ... I really hesitate to approach him and ask to take a picture ... Finally ... "Excuse me, I live in Paris and I'm in NYC to make some streets shooting, do you mind if i take a picture of your tattoo? ».... Moment of hesitation ... "Aiight man, go ahead" I take a picture of his left hand and there ... "Hold on !!! Don't move !!! " He puts his two hands in front to complete the tattoo ...”Harlem World”

Location: New York
