I'm not sure that this quite captures the feel of your title - the tat and hair are not quite representative of the relevant era. It is, however, an excellent standalone photograph - well lit, well composed, well processed, and easily in my top 20 for the challenge. 9.

Superb focal point here.
The overall subdued tones add a very strong impact and contribute to the mood in a huge way.
Well done!

I love this image. The darkness of the overall image really helps to isolate the subject. The look on his face and the over feel of the image tells a story for me. Great work.
