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.
