13-year-old Brazilian kid shows off the tattoos along his forearms

This 13-year-old lad was pushing a heavy wheelbarrow up a huge hill in Carmo do Paranaiba, a small coffee-growing region in the Triângulo Mineiro. He was with his little brother. It was a national holiday in Brazil on Friday, so the streets were empty.

I took the photo as they waited outside a hardware store, sat on their
wheelbarrows.

The boy said the left tattoo was his mother’s name, Maria, and the other his sister’s, Fabiana. He didn’t want to tell me anymore, but he was happy for me to take his photo.
