Horror sleeve / Full sleeve tattoo

There are a lot of full sleeve concepts, but seeing a horror full sleeve is not a common sight! It's thrilling looking at all those horrific pictures, some more deep than others, while all have a really scary matching aesthetic. The layout seems chaotic, and that certainly was the plan, but at the same time, every picture got its own dedicated place. Seeing this full sleeve come to life during all those months was a pleasure to watch.

The capricorn / photorealism

"They speak their minds, rather you like it or not. Sometimes the truth is ugly, and that’s why not everyone can handle the honesty of Capricorn." Brutally honest is the moto. Now that you know something about the zodiac and the meaning behind this beautiful art piece, let us focus on the black and gray fotorealism tattoo. The style this scene got portrayed in is clear, what isn't is how it was made, because the interesting part here is, that you can not find this picture anywhere else. This is because the mountain in the background was photographed by our customer himself. It's one of the pictures he made, while he was traveling. If our customers want something unique, we will always welcome it!

Venomous snake

“The snake stood up for evil in the Garden.” You like dark, detailed and stylised tattoos? Than this one is for you! Snakes are one of the most popular motives used for tattoos, you would think that since they are predators in the wild, most of them would be portrayed angry or aggressive but quite the opposite is the case. Over the last years we have tattooed small slithering, non aggressive snakes more often than not, so having one looking fierce and menacing in a big scale and with a lot of black ink in it is kind of rare, contrary to believe.

Finally a good boy : Cover-Up!

"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!

Shark on the chest : Maori tattoo

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.

Minis!

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.

Old school swallow

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.
