Small but gold. This classic looking old-school panther tattoo is a nice reminder of the simple but effective shading techniques and colour choices. You can't go wrong with old school. Bold will hold!

This price John tattoo sits so well on the leg, with his hands on the logo and the crown on top you can really tell who the King is. Beautiful shading on this piece, it gives it this three dimensional look, as if the hands are really gripping onto the coat of arms. The evil smirk and the crown that pushes his ears down, really do this character justice. Well done custom tattoo!
This dog got beautifully portrayed in this tattoo. The amber brown eyes, the whiskers on the snout and adorable look make this tattoo sooo adorable. It's a well done recreation of a best buddy. It's stunning how much detail you can pack into a tattoo. The fotoreal tattoos always look beautiful if the right person is doing them, and is a honorable reminder of the thing or person you want to capture.
"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.
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!
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.

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.
What animal can jump higher than a house? ... well any animal that can jump ... houses can't jump at all. A beautiful little array of minimalistic tiny tattoos featuring animals we have tattooed in the past. All feature a bit different aesthetic, because different people own them, but all in all, these mini animals are really cute and put a smile on your face everytime you look at one of them.
"When I needed a hand, I found your paws" Four little splashes of watercolour for four cute paws. The blue and the green work really well together. They got enough contrast so you can tell which feet were in which colour, but at the same time they mix together beautifully when they meet. The paw prints got a shiny surface as if the cat was standing on a glass surface and you look at it from below. Nice idea, the cat probably walked on glass tables a lot. :)
Moth medicine’s meaning is resurrection and transformation. A moth represents tremendous change, but it also seeks the light. Thus, moth spiritual meaning is to trust the changes that are happening and that freedom and liberation are around the corner. The moth got tattooed and drawn in an old school Design but with a not so common place. The simplistic design, the colour pallet and the overall shape are clean, simple but no doubt cool looking. The design features some pretty fine lines and mini details that are not expected in such a small old school piece.

"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.
