"Dylan Thomas" poem tattoo caslon

Another tattoo on the back of a young man I met at the Philadelphia Open Studios Tour back on October 11th. I'd noticed the type on his wrist peeking out from his shirt and was astounded to see well drawn typography in a recognizable typeface in a tattoo.

 

It's Adobe Caslon Pro, he proudly told me and gladly agreed to let me photograph him.
