Ancient statue : realism black and gray tattoo

Ancient statues become more and more relevant in the tattoo industry. Busts and statues most of the time, should look like they are out of stone. You do this by keeping some really strong contrast, to make sure the stone or marble looks like an object that never lets light through it. On the other side ancient artists made the surface of the objects really smooth so therefore a soft shading is required to portray these smooth curves. All in all it's the combination of both that replicates an art object onto the skin of our customers in a way that looks, as if you could touch it.

Finally a good boy : Cover-Up!

"Good tattoos aren't cheap and cheap tattoos aren't good." This one is crazy! A customer once came to us and showed us the bad work of two people that tattooed her, on more or less the same spot ...

The panda came first the dog was second, and no, the yellow on the left is not painted on with markers, but was actually already tattooed in an attempt to cover the panda! Finally, our great tattoo-artist Luca Romeo got his hands on it and got rid of the panda, and on top of that, corrected the dogs face into a beautifully adorable one. Our customer was unbelievable happy, to finally have a quality tattoo under her skin!

Shark on the chest : Maori tattoo

Maori or Polynesian tattoos are often shown as ranging from lower arms to full sleeves or even body suits. But not everyone can or want to start with a full limb, so we always try to find a solution for those, that like the style but want something else. For instance a bracelet with patterns that are important for them, symbolising a strong family bond or strength. In this case we have an animal that our customer liked, that we designed to have Polynesian patterns inside that form the silhouette of the shark in a way that you can instantly tell what it is, but also keeping the style of the tattoo direction he liked. This one is professionally handcrafted, and our tattoo-artist Neumie even used a pattern to symbolise the teeth in the shark.

Minis!

Here we have a few mini tattoos. Tiny but important. Some tattoos have it, and some don't, which we are referring to are meanings behind the Tattoo. What we have experienced after the last few years is, that most of the time the small tattoos, tend to be those with meaning behind of them. Of course this is not the rule but most of the time a little script or even a little paw print let us remind us of something we love or want to achieve in our life. Therefore, it is not necessary to go big, only because it means a lot to you, not to say going big isn't the way.

Black and gray peonies

This tattoo on the upper arm was a partner-tattoo with the rose on the calf. You can look up the picture if you type in the name "Artistic rose in a rough sketchy style". Both are stunning but while the other one succeeds in creativity, this one takes the win for immense prettiness! If you think about a peonie you think about its beautiful softness and delicateness. Everything got captured perfectly in the black and gray tattoo. The fine outlines and the soft shading let this tattoo stand out. Also, look at all that detail inside the flower... Stunning!

Artistic rose in a rough sketchy style

Big rose on the calf, but theres more to point out! The triangle in the background takes care of the contrast and therefore is the reason the rose pops out of the frame. The sketchy or carved style is going through the whole tattoo and is meanwhile more present than ever before. Since one rose alone couldn't fill this triangle, Luca added some leaves, a few on the upper part and a lot on the lower region of the tattoo, they fill the picture and round it all up. A big and stylish approach to one of the most iconic tattoo motives.
