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.
“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.
"King Leonidas: Tonight, we dine in Hell." This Spartan helmet and the scripting below screams "war"! The tattoo features mostly black and gray line with only the blood being red, which makes it look similar to a trashpolka tattoo. The script is in a sketched style which fits perfectly to the warrior helmet.
"Look at me! I'm Mr. Meeseeks" This coloured tattoo is made to look like a sticker that is sitting on the customer. Our funny but depressing little friend Mr. Meeseeks got tattooed perfectly. The fine lines that shape the sticker with the white outline looks stunning. For the sticker effect, we put a shadow behind the white, to get the effect of sitting above the skin. Nice tattoo that every fan of the show can look at and smile.
"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.
"There is a world where hopes and dreams can last for all time." This pretty little mermaid is well known for her bright red hair. We all know who Ariel is, it's an Disneys classic. This tattoo is combining black and gray in the back of the mermaid with colourful hair beautifully. The red has different tones some more orange than red, that creates a nice shimmering effect. Pretty looking tattoo all in all.
Lovely Anime tattoo. Chihiro is cuddling with Haku in a beautiful, colorful scene. This makes for a cute tattoo for all studio Ghibli fans. The flowers add to the composition and lets you better feel the moment. Nice simple shading and enough colour to give it the Kawaii look.
The usual happy little kitty got enough and goes crazy! This unusual design features some nice strong colours. But not only the cat, but also the spider net in blue as a background is a welcome change of tone. All in all a nice colourful tattoo with a weird twist.
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.
Great saturated colours in this well placed newschool-tattoo. It sits snug on the thigh with a bit of hair going through the clean outline of the background. Nice and simple colours, great custom made new school design.. this makes for a sick Tattoo.
"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.
“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.
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.
"I'm just a really aggressive cucumber!" Simple Design but nice shadows on the plant. This Cactus stands out of the skin, even though it has so much skin showing through. The shadows make it look three dimensional. A very clean tattoo on a nice spot.
"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.
"How can u rise if u have not burned." Stunning realistic tiger tattoo. The eyes of the tiger look right back. Beautiful fur structure, you can see every little hair on the animals face. Everything gets framed beautifully with the smoke coming up. Well placed, well detailed, well done!
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.
"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.

Pippilotta Viktualia Rollgardina Pfefferminz Efraimstochter Langstrumpf! Mit diesem Tattoo wird die ikonische Figur mal ein bisschen umgestaltet. Aber durch ihr rotes Haar erkennt man sie immer noch sofort. Manchmal muss halt ein wenig Kunst auf die Haut.

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.
