Here we set the focus on a single thing, this colourful peony. It's in front of some typical Japanese windbars and surrounded by cherry blossoms. The Japanese Style never disappoint if done by the right artist. The bold lines that get used in this style are always there to support the colours to the maximum and for a reason, because the fade between colours is outstanding in this flower. The contrast between the purple on the leaves that then fades to yellow towards the middle is just a stunning thing to look at.
Tigers are considered sacred and divine creatures in many cultures. According to Hindu mythology, the tiger serves as the vehicle of goddess Durga at the time of battle. Besides their spiritual importance, they also play a significant role in maintaining the biodiversity of an ecosystem. As an apex predator, the tiger sits at the top of the food chain. They have no natural predators, but they remain vulnerable to poaching and human interference. This arm started as a cover up for something that wasn't looking good anymore and was placed wrong. Meanwhile, the Tattoo got expanded over the whole arm and soon will be continued onto the upper inner arm.
Every art has its few difficulties, and water is one of them. In this Forest scene we see the river taking on a big portion of the area and is the main focus, so seeing someone portray water so realistic like here is a rare sight. Thumbs up to Luca, our specialist for realism / photorealistic tattoos.
An eye on the elbow is something you don't see every day. The tattoo got designed in an oldchool theme but not without exceptions. For instance the eye it self is not really old-school, nor is the frame. But overall it fits to the rest of the arm. Since it's not a coloured tattoo, it has to shine threw its shading and contrast. The eye it self is balanced in shading, but what aren't are the flowers, the empty space in them lets them pop out in front of the dark leaves surrounding them. Since the flower leaves are not coloured, they make the tattoo fade beautifully into the surrounding skin.
Flowers are a common thing to be getting tattooed, which isn't bad. They are something organic, that can be shaped, design wise, into a lot of positions to fit perfectly to the spot they get tattooed on. Also, they do have a lot of Symbolism to them. Here we do have a combination of a realistic style but in an abstract composition. The man walking along the lone road with nothing else in mind. This tattoo has a movie poster vibe to it. It looks original, even with the common themes it has.
Summer vibes incoming! Pretty colours, clean lines, Iconic symbols and made with passion! The wave of kanagawa coming out of the surfboard is a cool idea and matches perfectly with the aquarelle aesthetic of the overall tattoo. Bright colours got used also in the flowers, complementary colours I may add. This tattoo is just a nice colourfull piece to enjoy. Great work of our tattoo-artis Luca.
White roses have many meanings. They represent youthfulness, innocence, young love, and loyalty and are often used at weddings. This is because they also represent purity, making them a perfect option for marriage. This tattoo is representing all of them above with it's soft and pretty appearance. Although you could say that they could be any-coloured roses, since the design is tattooed in black and gray.
“Water is the driving force of all nature.” Here is a nice design where a lot of parts of the nature found together for a beautiful familiy tattoo. Theres water, the driving force of all nature, a flower symbolic of all the flora and the shape of a turtle, symbolic of all the fauna on this planet. Theres nothing more amazing than nature it self.
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." A blooming thistle is always a nice candidate for some interesting colour-tattoo, do it in an aquarell Style and you got your self a colourfull, artistic and all around flashy tattoo.
There's another great example of a tattoo sleeve in progress in a realism-style. The realistic roses have a nice contrast and corner the clock perfectly wich is the focal point in this design. It's very detailed, and you can see even some gears in between the broken parts.
This one is for the picky ones out there. ;) Simple and clean. A thick circle that is surrounding the little plant in the desert. Th plant is instantly recognizable and the little stars and the sand tells you where this picture is located, not much more to say, but in a good way.
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.
This tattoo on the upper arm was a partner-tattoo with the rose on the calf. You can look up the picture if you type in the name "Artistic rose in a rough sketchy style". Both are stunning but while the other one succeeds in creativity, this one takes the win for immense prettiness! If you think about a peonie you think about its beautiful softness and delicateness. Everything got captured perfectly in the black and gray tattoo. The fine outlines and the soft shading let this tattoo stand out. Also, look at all that detail inside the flower... Stunning!
Big rose on the calf, but theres more to point out! The triangle in the background takes care of the contrast and therefore is the reason the rose pops out of the frame. The sketchy or carved style is going through the whole tattoo and is meanwhile more present than ever before. Since one rose alone couldn't fill this triangle, Luca added some leaves, a few on the upper part and a lot on the lower region of the tattoo, they fill the picture and round it all up. A big and stylish approach to one of the most iconic tattoo motives.
This colourful tattoo is depicting a breathtakingly stunning landscape. You have everything you would want, waterfalls, a huge river and a pretty cherry blossom tree in front of it. The landscape got framed with some wooden/golden elements. But what takes it home are the big cherry blossoms. This tattoo is a unique art piece.
A rose? Sure. Flames? Sure. Both are common motives in the history of tattoos, but this tattoo gets it to another level with its detailed work on the fire, beautiful and delicate shading on the leaves and the placement wich sets a statement!
Ravens are symbolic for all kinds of stuff. This one is symbolic as a prime example for the neotraditional art direction seen in tattoos. The white outlines around the raven let it pop out in front of the red moon in the background. The red flowers on the arm have the same saturation as the moon to create an all around cohesive masterpiece. Great work by our tattoo artist Luca Romeo.
This tattoo depicts a nice and fresh rose in a fotorealism tattoo-style. I love how you can see the waterdrops so clearly ontop of the flower and the clock works beautiful with the rose aswell. It's a great example on a realistic black and gray design.
"My life is part humor, part roses, part thorns.” This pretty rose in the new school aesthetic is crazy. The placement is super cool, the bright red on the hand looks striking. The dark background complements the leaves with just the right amount of contrast, so the greenish yellow doesn't look like skin colour from a distance. And the red leaves on top, so pretty. Nice placement for such a stunning new school rose.
This rose features more or less realistic proportions, but in a stylised execution. Some nice shading on the leaves, some lighter shadows between the blossom leaves and not to forget beautiful fine lines in them as well. All this with the added white highlights sprinkled here and there makes it a pretty and artistic rose to look at, and a great tattoo as well.
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.
The flower is made only with dots, it's a stunning piece of art, and cost a lot of time but the result can be seen! Dotwork works great for simple shapes, pattern or shading, to give the tattoo more structure and make it more interesting, its a nice technic but doesn't work in every style. If you are interested in dotwork, just speak with your tattoo artist and ask him/her if dotwork would be possible.
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.
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.
"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.
"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.
"Shadows mutter, mist replies, darkness purrs as midnight sighs." This Black and gray forest got directly drawn on the skin. Free Hand you can say. After the sketch was finished and the customer was happy with it, Luca started with the tattooing. The tattoo has spooky vibes and the blurred trees in the back create a nice deep perspective. All in all a great example of tattooing a free handed sketch.
"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.
"Stop trying to make everyone happy, you are not a beer." Great shading on the light part of the plant. A special technique was used to create a shading effect with fine lines, that look like dots in some areas. This is used to great effect on this piece to give the hoop more structure. Great simple layout but nicely done.
“A tree with strong roots laughs at storms.” A nice combination of the Geometric elements and the tree trunk with its strong roots going down. Great use of the fine lines to highlight the cracks in the tree. It makes it more detailed which creates a nice contrast to the simple triangles and gives the trunk a bit more structure. Definitely a well done unique, simple design.
"There are always flowers for those, who want to see them."
"Flowers grow out of dark moments."
About 50 million years ago, the first rose in America were found in modern-day Colorado.
