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.
There he is! Bambi's best friend Thumper. He got tattooed in a more sketchy style but with all the details you would want him to have. He got his Iconic gray fur with some brown parts around the eyes, on the cheeks and his feet. The drawn aesthetic fits perfectly to the colours that got tattooed to look like watercolours.
"It's dangerous to go alone! Take this" This is probably the most Iconic thing in Zelda, maybe besides Link's cap. The Triforce is the Power that connects everything and most of the time it get portrayed in goldish yellow. In this tattoo, there's a beautiful mix between bright yellowish gold and almost rusty looking colours that got mixed in the Aquarell aesthetic. The Watercolour effect works beautifully with the sketched lines design of the triangles. Pretty good job for such an iconic ancient piece!
"I must say, I really felt quite distressed at not receiving an invitation." This Disney tattoo is stunning! The dark fairy herself is portrayed in the animated look. The Eyes with her judgy look scream Maleficent. And of course the costume, so iconic. The colorful background is a nice spin on the normally dark presence of the woman and the Aquarell aesthetic looks beautiful!
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.
“True love is rare, and it's the only thing that gives life real meaning.” Pretty Aquarell tattoo on the forearm of our customer. The watercolors got used to highlight the most important parts of the piece, to give them even more power. The blue for the sea behind the bottle and the anchor and the lovely red in front of the heart shaped part of the anchor. This Aquarell piece looks really cute and the shading gives it the right amount of contrast so the colour in the background still feels like added bonus and don't take away from the actual things itself.
"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.
"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf." This ocean wave, with its fine line tattoo elements sprinkled throughout makes a great art piece on our clients upper arm.
"Maybe one day we'll find the place where our dreams and reality collide." Great use of colour mixing! This tattoo shows a lot of skill from our tattoo artist, blending together a lot of colours with an Aquarell aesthetic. Our customer was very happy with this newly custom made design on his ankle.
"Keep smiling... and one day life will get tired of upsetting you." This is a different take on a smiley. The emoji sits perfectly on the muscle and the effect of the spray got translated gorgeously. But the arm wasn't finished, so we added some roughly sketches graffiti mountains under it! All in all this makes for a super cool abstract piece with simplicity and well recreated spraycan effects in it.
“Isn't it amazing how much stuff we get done the day before vacation?” Aren't we all looking for vacation at these times? The roughly sketched design of this tattoo lets it seem as if it got scribbled directly onto the skin. With a bit of watercolour painted afterwards. Simple but very effective. Nice use of different shading techniques and a few structural differences between the grass and the ground helps the Aquarell aesthetic come to life.
"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.
"Every flower blooms in its own time." The pretty little poppy flower got tattooed on the forearm. Great use of the pastel red tattoo ink, which highlights the softness of the flower. Watercolour is used throughout, for a nice well rounded art piece which fits perfectly on our customers lower arm.
"Strength lies in differences, not in similarities." Born and raised in two different countries. This tattoo shows colour well integrated into the otherwise sketchy tattoo. The anatomic hearth works perfect for the design and the flags that come out of the tubes make for a fluid tattoo that goes around the lower leg. The sketched fine line shading and different textures you can find in the heart help to let this style come to life.
"The sky speaks in a thousand colours." Beautiful, idyllic sunset. The colours are just stunning, the fade from orange into yellow mixed with dark, but vivid purple makes it very unique. The silhouette of the palm trees and the family in the front frame the tattoo really nice and don't take away from the amazing sunset.
"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.
"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.
"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. :)
