This blue rose with the googly eye inside is well done in a new school design. The fades between the colour in the blue and the green are so well done. These are placed to give the piece some shadows, which always help to make the tattoo richer in contrast. This is the reason the rose looks so "3D", because of the clash of the dark places and the highlights.
“True love is rare, and it's the only thing that gives life real meaning.” Pretty Aquarell tattoo on the forearm of our customer. The watercolors got used to highlight the most important parts of the piece, to give them even more power. The blue for the sea behind the bottle and the anchor and the lovely red in front of the heart shaped part of the anchor. This Aquarell piece looks really cute and the shading gives it the right amount of contrast so the colour in the background still feels like added bonus and don't take away from the actual things itself.
"It's okay to be less than perfect." This black and gray fine line tattoo depicts charlie brown and snoopy looking into the distance. You can only see their backs, but they are recognizable in an instant. The fineline aesthetic in general is good for tinytattoos and this one is another perfect example
This symbol looks like the sun, but in a very simplistic approach. The placement on the hand fits perfect. The simple all in black aesthetic always look good as a tattoo and especially on the hand. Well placed, clean fine lines and good looking minimalistic design, makes for a sick tattoo!
The flower is made only with dots, it's a stunning piece of art, and cost a lot of time but the result can be seen! Dotwork works great for simple shapes, pattern or shading, to give the tattoo more structure and make it more interesting, its a nice technic but doesn't work in every style. If you are interested in dotwork, just speak with your tattoo artist and ask him/her if dotwork would be possible.
"King Leonidas: Tonight, we dine in Hell." This Spartan helmet and the scripting below screams "war"! The tattoo features mostly black and gray line with only the blood being red, which makes it look similar to a trashpolka tattoo. The script is in a sketched style which fits perfectly to the warrior helmet.
"A knight in shining armor is a man who has never had his metal truly tested." Nice looking silhouette of Don Quixote on his horse. You can clearly see all the important things, like the shield or the lance, but in an aesthetic that looks more like the Rorschach test than anything else. The design combined with the watercolour in the back gives the tattoo a nice artsy look. In the background there is a nice balance between each of the colours, but with beautiful transitions between them. That's what makes a good Aquarell tattoo.
"Look at me! I'm Mr. Meeseeks" This coloured tattoo is made to look like a sticker that is sitting on the customer. Our funny but depressing little friend Mr. Meeseeks got tattooed perfectly. The fine lines that shape the sticker with the white outline looks stunning. For the sticker effect, we put a shadow behind the white, to get the effect of sitting above the skin. Nice tattoo that every fan of the show can look at and smile.
"Eagles don't take flight lessons from chickens." This newschool looking eagle sits perfectly in the hand of our customer. Cool design with the feathers flowing in the air, and some not tattooed skin poking threw in the form of the wind. Cute looking head ad nice colour used in the background.
"There is a world where hopes and dreams can last for all time." This pretty little mermaid is well known for her bright red hair. We all know who Ariel is, it's an Disneys classic. This tattoo is combining black and gray in the back of the mermaid with colourful hair beautifully. The red has different tones some more orange than red, that creates a nice shimmering effect. Pretty looking tattoo all in all.
This geometric dotwork sleeve looks stunning. So many dots got used in this mandala to form a sick piece on the back of the arm. Beautifully done and well integrated into the other patterns that run all over the sleeve.
Lovely Anime tattoo. Chihiro is cuddling with Haku in a beautiful, colorful scene. This makes for a cute tattoo for all studio Ghibli fans. The flowers add to the composition and lets you better feel the moment. Nice simple shading and enough colour to give it the Kawaii look.
The usual happy little kitty got enough and goes crazy! This unusual design features some nice strong colours. But not only the cat, but also the spider net in blue as a background is a welcome change of tone. All in all a nice colourful tattoo with a weird twist.
Trash Polka is always a good style of mixing things that you like that normally don't go together so well. As seen here. Playing card symbols got mixed with roses. Besides the colour of the heart, diamond and the roses they don't have much in common, but this striking Trashpolka Style with a bit of Dots and watercolour added converts it into an amazing sleeve of art on our customers forearm.
Great saturated colours in this well placed newschool-tattoo. It sits snug on the thigh with a bit of hair going through the clean outline of the background. Nice and simple colours, great custom made new school design.. this makes for a sick Tattoo.
This mini fine line tattoo own to friends. This is a great example of a friend / partner / Marriage tattoo with the same motive. You don't have to get your friend's name tattooed, a symbol that both of you like can look just as good.
The use of dot work is the cherry on top of this otherwise so clean fine line tattoo. It gives the doorway depth and not only a black inside. The clef is very well integrated into the dots.
Luca did a great job hiding the big old tribal tattoo inside the pattern of the new realistic owl head. A broken clock does the job too. Together they hide the old tattoo perfectly and make for a great cover-up!
"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf." This ocean wave, with its fine line tattoo elements sprinkled throughout makes a great art piece on our clients upper arm.
"Maybe one day we'll find the place where our dreams and reality collide." Great use of colour mixing! This tattoo shows a lot of skill from our tattoo artist, blending together a lot of colours with an Aquarell aesthetic. Our customer was very happy with this newly custom made design on his ankle.
"Aries are very honest people, their words can easily offend others." The clean hexagons placed perfectly on the chest give us a look at the geometrical simplified Aries head, which is a zodiac sign known for its honesty.
"Keep smiling... and one day life will get tired of upsetting you." This is a different take on a smiley. The emoji sits perfectly on the muscle and the effect of the spray got translated gorgeously. But the arm wasn't finished, so we added some roughly sketches graffiti mountains under it! All in all this makes for a super cool abstract piece with simplicity and well recreated spraycan effects in it.
"You can't blame us. Disney taught us to rebel at a young age." This not so stereotypical Blackwork design features some fine lines, and an overall simple art style. It seems like Disney is hiding a small secret.
"Patience is power." Crazy amount of details in this realistic lion piece. A high contrast rose added next to the kings head sets a nice end on this black and gray realism half sleeve.
"Walk where your heart leads you." Nicely done geometric tattoo with a lot of fineline usage. The Tattoo shows the excitement and joy you get from taking adventurous trips. The fine lines coming from the sun with the soft shading in the mountain tops show a great contrast in the tattoo without using colour. Everything is beautifully framed inside of two triangles, which makes it a very nice good looking but compact tattoo.
“Isn't it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation?” Aren't we all looking for vacation at these times? The roughly sketched design of this tattoo lets it seem as if it got scribbled directly onto the skin. With a bit of watercolour painted afterwards. Simple but very effective. Nice use of different shading techniques and a few structural differences between the grass and the ground helps the Aquarell aesthetic come to life.
"Big things often have small beginnings." The Black and gray realistic Turtles stand out of the brightly coloured Aquarell background, like two worlds beautifully merged together. Watercolour get used often as a background, but most of the time selective throughout the piece. It's nice to see so much watercolour in one place.
"Every flower blooms in its own time." The pretty little poppy flower got tattooed on the forearm. Great use of the pastel red tattoo ink, which highlights the softness of the flower. Watercolour is used throughout, for a nice well rounded art piece which fits perfectly on our customers lower arm.
Tattoo Studio Munich: Since 1999, your Chaos Crew ™ has offered you great quality and professional tattoos. Unique works of art are created on your skin in a disinfected work environment.
"Shadows mutter, mist replies, darkness purrs as midnight sighs." This Black and gray forest got directly drawn on the skin. Free Hand you can say. After the sketch was finished and the customer was happy with it, Luca started with the tattooing. The tattoo has spooky vibes and the blurred trees in the back create a nice deep perspective. All in all a great example of tattooing a free handed sketch.
Originally, the Moko gave insight to a man’s tribal affiliation and social ranking. "Every shape, pattern and symbol told a story of his unique background and offered an insightful connection to his integrity and whakapapa. However, what you see today isn’t always a precise representation of the past. A lot of the patterns used today are for aesthetic reasons." The Patterns on this arm are blocked in 3 big rectangles. These rectangles get cut into much smaller ones and filled with geometric patterns that are also often used in Polynesian Tattoos. On the Back of the arm three different but similar patterns form a stripe that runs down the whole piece, which lets everything band together even nicer. ( seen in the left picture )
"Strength lies in differences, not in similarities." Born and raised in two different countries. This tattoo shows colour well integrated into the otherwise sketchy tattoo. The anatomic hearth works perfect for the design and the flags that come out of the tubes make for a fluid tattoo that goes around the lower leg. The sketched fine line shading and different textures you can find in the heart help to let this style come to life.
"The sky speaks in a thousand colours." Beautiful, idyllic sunset. The colours are just stunning, the fade from orange into yellow mixed with dark, but vivid purple makes it very unique. The silhouette of the palm trees and the family in the front frame the tattoo really nice and don't take away from the amazing sunset.
"A dog is the only relative you get to choose." Pretty colours used together to complement the paw prints of the dog's feet. It just wouldn't be the same without this arrange of colour. The auqarell aesthetic with its colour blending effect makes it a pretty little background, that doesn't overshadow the paws, but integrates them into the tattoo.
Parrots have featured in human writings, story, art, humor, religion, and music for thousands of years, such as Aesop's fable "The parrot and the cat" This tattoo features some cute, simple colours that fit together nicely. The parrot with its simplistic design found a new home on our customers upper arm. A well recognizable bird, even from a far.
"I'm just a really aggressive cucumber!" Simple Design but nice shadows on the plant. This Cactus stands out of the skin, even though it has so much skin showing through. The shadows make it look three dimensional. A very clean tattoo on a nice spot.
"What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us." Nice unusual position for a mandala. Centered on the hand, yes, but moved to the side isn't common, but it fits perfectly. One leaf of the mandala even goes on top of the thumb, which makes the otherwise geometric piece more open without breaking the rules of the mandala. Pretty detailed tattoo with a lot of fine lines.
"As days fade and nights grow. It's the circle of life, and it moves us all, through despair and hope, through faith and love, 'till we find our place, on the path unwinding." The simple shapes used for the sun, the moon and the clouds, mixed with a bit of shading and a skull makes for a nice medieval inspired tattoo. Only gray got used for the shading, which lets the outlines pop! Nice illustration with a simple banner with the script on it that fits perfect for the design direction the customer wanted.
Deer or hoofed ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. All male deer possess antlers, with the exception of the water deer, in which males have long tusk-like canines that reach below the lower jaw. This Deer head is stunning, its horns bend perfectly on the customers forearm. The always curious face mirrors the personality of this animal wonderfully. A great tattoo with a unique style, which takes the fur to another level! Best seen in the lower region of the animal's neck.
"The hardest walk you can make is the walk you make alone. But that is the walk that makes you the strongest." Striking design on the chest. The detailed wolf head is stunning and a work of art. The graffiti drops on the sides and the Brush strokes turn the realistic looking wolf head into a piece of art. The geometric forms that frame the shoulder are placed perfectly and compliment this sketchy surrounding perfect.
"Life is a circle. The end of our journey is the beginning of the next." Simple looking, but more complicated to tattoo than you might think. Our artist lets this black stroke look like it was painted with a brush. The fine line mini scripts make for a nice minimalistic tattoo on the foot. Well placed around the ankle. Clean work.
"There are many branches of learning, but only the one solid tree-trunk of wisdom." Watercolour, check! Abstract, check! Lot of black, check! Even more colour, check! Seriously, this piece is crazy. The beautiful blue in the tree mixed with a vivid red that gets sucked out of the person makes you think. I let you interpret what this abstract tattoo means, all I know is, that it works well on the skin and overall is definitely a unique piece of art.
"Warriors are not the ones who always win, but the ones that always fight." This lone Samurai and the scenery around it is beautiful in its design, and gets so much emotion across. The technique used for the style our customer wanted is breathtaking. All those small fine lines on the cloth are well placed and the shading looks stunning. Well crafted art piece that fits snugly on the place of the body.
"Stop trying to make everyone happy, you are not a beer." Great shading on the light part of the plant. A special technique was used to create a shading effect with fine lines, that look like dots in some areas. This is used to great effect on this piece to give the hoop more structure. Great simple layout but nicely done.
"Virgos are very quiet people, if they let you into their lives you should feel flattered." This mini tattoo sits in a beautiful round circle. The Style is simplistic, which makes for a clean overall look for this minimalistic tattoo. The star sign sits perfectly in the sky so nothing is cut off and you can see the Virgo sign in an instant. The surrounding mountains benefit of the smooth shading.
"The sun loved the moon so much that she died every night just to let him breathe." These two tiny tattoos are so cute for their size and the minimalistic design. This simple design makes for a good couple or friend tattoo.
"Every survival kit should include a sense of humor." Simple designs for these important items you definitely need if you are out on an adventure. The minimalistic design lets you collect more tattoos on your body, and I'm sure with this customer he will get some more. :)
"How can u rise if u have not burned." Stunning realistic tiger tattoo. The eyes of the tiger look right back. Beautiful fur structure, you can see every little hair on the animals face. Everything gets framed beautifully with the smoke coming up. Well placed, well detailed, well done!
“A tree with strong roots laughs at storms.” A nice combination of the Geometric elements and the tree trunk with its strong roots going down. Great use of the fine lines to highlight the cracks in the tree. It makes it more detailed which creates a nice contrast to the simple triangles and gives the trunk a bit more structure. Definitely a well done unique, simple design.
A swallow bird can mean many things depending on a person’s cultural background. For ancient Greeks, these birds represent their goddess of love, namely, Aphrodite. The Greeks believed that swallows have the ability to bring love and happiness to a person. For the ancient Romans, they associate swallows as the embodiment of lost souls of children who died during childbirth. Lastly, for modern Christians, these birds mean rebirth or new beginnings. No matter the cultural meaning of these birds is, one can conclude that they symbolize a form of hope. This may be the reason why these birds are usually protected in the vast majority of cultures. Really nice example of an old school tattoo. Nice simple colours and great shading let this swallow stand out from the rest. Cute little tattoo on the shoulder. The lines are well done and have to be for a good minimalistic old school tattoo.
