The continuation of our customer's horror sleeve! -This time Luca gave him a stunning tattoo of a woman floating in the abyss... Her hair flows like water, the dress sits tight on her body. Another great black and gray piece on the arm! Here you can really see the depth of the body. Also search for: Broken face : realism tattoo
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 )
“Water is the driving force of all nature.” Here is a nice design where a lot of parts of the nature found together for a beautiful familiy tattoo. Theres water, the driving force of all nature, a flower symbolic of all the flora and the shape of a turtle, symbolic of all the fauna on this planet. Theres nothing more amazing than nature it self.
This proud lion is the king of a full upper arm. The sketchy style is always interesting and visually stunning. You combine a tattoo with basically a sketch of the motive you want, wich makes it look more rough or playful, depending on how you use it. It's especially great for doing hairs and beards to give them more expression. On a lion it works perfectly, no doubt!
Here we have two Tattoos, a skull that goes into an anatomical heart and two legs poking up from under the skin. These Tattoos are small not tiny tho. They have nice clean lines, and a bit of black was used to give them more power. Overall two small funny tattoos.
If you know anime, you probably also know One-piece. Here's a tattoo of Nami, the navigator of the straw hat pirate crew! A nice approach with the shading for the 2D Character. On the far right you can already see the hairs of Nico Robin poking through. Keep checking out the News blog, here on the ChaosCrew Website for more OnePiece-Tattoos. This customer is getting a full sleeve with all of his faves.
I rang the fishing helpline today and said, "I'm rubbish at fishing, can you help me?" The guy said, "Can you hold the line?" I said, "No." ;) Well-rounded, funny, awsome tattoo. Smoking fish, but different. This one shines with its already amazing design, placement, colour fading/shading and of course the visually stunning primary colour contrast! It's just an absolute solid tattoo!
"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 ... What you see on the left is someones try to "cover" someone else's design. 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!
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.
"Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath." The detail in this tattoo is very well placed, all the white highlights are spot on, the softness of the fins and how they seem transparent are on point. It's crazy how you can pick out individual scales, due to the amazing skills of our artist Luca. If you want an appointment with him, just give us a call or visit us directly in the shop!
This fine line tattoo is for a very special one. The tattoo holds memories and got designed and tattooed with a lot of care. Like all of our tattoos it is always exactly the thing that the customers want, with every tattoo we give our best to craft you a beautiful and unique piece, just for you.
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." A blooming thistle is always a nice candidate for some interesting colour-tattoo, do it in an aquarell Style and you got your self a colourfull, artistic and all around flashy tattoo.
“Let us see how high we can fly before the sun melts the wax in our wings.” An eagles wing on the arm. Theres a realistic approach given to this one, with a creative touch to make it more "sharp". Wings on the arm often get used as a representation of freedom and are a tattoo classic.
