Downtown Austin

I spotted this graffiti on a wall outdoors. It appears to be a little boy putting temporary (kid) tattoos on his arm. I like that the tattoos are juvenile: a little girl on his upper arm; a seahorse and jumping dolphins a little lower. His posture, facial expression and clothing are grown up, though. I love that contrast as well as the idea of permanence or lack of it since the artwork itself is peeling.
When I first saw it, I thought the kid was peeling himself off the wall. It is signed Icy and Sot, who I looked up and found to be a couple of stencil artists from Iran.
