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.
“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.
“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.
