The owl with realistic proportions got tattooed by one of our artists Luca. He used a sketchy art style to bring this one to life. The owl got some ornamental parts within, that go inspired by owl tikis and Aztec designs. The sketch-style always helps to show the movement of something and creates a nice dynamic piece if you do it right.
Dogs, dogs and more dogs! Lately we do a lot of dog tattoos here in the Chaos Crew. Ranging from pawprints over silhouettes to realistic dog-portraits and everything in between. We are really happy about it, because every tattoo is always unique due to the individual faces and body types the animals have. Also our customers come here with always different ideas on how they want there favorite pet portrayed, so it keeps the motive fresh and is always a bit of a new experience.
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.
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.
This colourful tattoo is depicting a breathtakingly stunning landscape. You have everything you would want, waterfalls, a huge river and a pretty cherry blossom tree in front of it. The landscape got framed with some wooden/golden elements. But what takes it home are the big cherry blossoms. This tattoo is a unique art piece.
This nordic pattern design got tattooed with blue ink, wich fits perfect with the theme of the tattoo. The use of simple repetitive shapes with little differences in between got used to full effect to create a great looking finished project. It really has this Celtic feel to it.
Here we have some emotion packed scenes of a woman posing and two persons kissing each other. Both tattoos got done by the same artist on the same person, thats why the style of these matches so perfect. Tattoos that got planned ahead generally work the best together, altho theres nothing wrong with spontaneous ideas.
These simplistic fineline scrips are each surrounded by a small oneline design. One has the moon behind it, and the other is featuring two persons kissing each other.
Wich side are you choosing? The tattoo shows the two symbols of the ongoing rivalry of the rebellion and the empire. If you take a look inside the symbols, you can see a very detailed second Deathstar, with a lot of fine lines and great shading. The clean outlines surrounding the emblems create a well-balanced and readable design.
Super cute tattoo with all the butterflies and the stars sprinkled around in front of the Aquarell rainbow background. It looks like a fantasy dream come true. The scribbled looking stars and the more realistic looking butterflies create a beautiful mix. The tattoo is so pretty and shows how a lot of watercolour brings something unique to the table!
These Asian symbols are placed on the calf and got surrounded by a huge load of watercolours! Very nice colours got picked for this tattoo that work together really well. The Scripting on top of the Aquarell background is well saturated with a dark black, and the fact that behind the symbols is the lightest part of the coloured background helps with the visability. Great tattoo from our artist.
"Each brushstroke is a decision." 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 added drops add detail on top and provide an interesting motive with a simple composition. Even though it is just a brush stroke it has a Japanese flair to it.
This abstract scripting is really well placed, right below the collar bones. The line with the triangle shaped geometric symbol that looks like an arrow sits also well in the center of the chest on the sternum. All of them sit well and have enough space between each other to breath. They look complex and simple at the same time complementing the female anatomy in a pretty way.
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.
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!
"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.
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.
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!
"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.
"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.
"Life has many ways of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once." This woman face got tattooed with some well placed fine lines. The tattoo has the aesthetic like a one line tattoo has. Simply clean look, only black, no shading. Fits perfectly on the spot and because you can see the face so clearly, you can still see the emotions written in the mimic.
"Intuitions are like migratory birds, they come without a map without a reason."
"A women is dangerous when she is armed with beauty and a sense of humor, as she becomes irresistibly addictive."
"No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother's love."
Franz Marc's painting "Der Tiger", or "The Tiger", is perhaps one of the best examples of his typical style. It is Marc's stunning use of bold yellow and thick black lines that not only separate the great cat from the rocky background, but which also seem to make the tiger almost leap from the canvas.
