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.
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.
"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!
A man we all know. Jesus Christ got portrayed, calm, knowing and forgiving. This realistic tattoo is capturing him spot on! The shading in the face and neck is stunning, and the white highlights all over this tattoo are the cherry on top of it.
Ancient statues become more and more relevant in the tattoo industry. Busts and statues most of the time, should look like they are out of stone. You do this by keeping some really strong contrast, to make sure the stone or marble looks like an object that never lets light through it. On the other side ancient artists made the surface of the objects really smooth so therefore a soft shading is required to portray these smooth curves. All in all it's the combination of both that replicates an art object onto the skin of our customers in a way that looks, as if you could touch it.
“Scratch a dog, and you’ll find a permanent job.” Another photorealistic dog for our returning customer. It's stunning how much detail you can pack in one tattoo. But here it definitely pays off! All those little hairs makes the fur feel fluffy just from looking at it. If interested in the other dog, check also: Photo realistic dog portrait ( 1 )
The continuation of our customer's horror sleeve! -This time Luca gave him a stunning tattoo of a woman floating in the abyss... Her hair flows like water, the dress sits tight on her body. Another great black and gray piece on the arm! Here you can really see the depth of the body. Also search for: Broken face : realism tattoo
"Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath." The detail in this tattoo is very well placed, all the white highlights are spot on, the softness of the fins and how they seem transparent are on point. It's crazy how you can pick out individual scales, due to the amazing skills of our artist Luca. If you want an appointment with him, just give us a call or visit us directly in the shop!
“Let us see how high we can fly before the sun melts the wax in our wings.” An eagles wing on the arm. Theres a realistic approach given to this one, with a creative touch to make it more "sharp". Wings on the arm often get used as a representation of freedom and are a tattoo classic.
The continuation of our customer's horror sleeve! This time with a scream from a broken face. The amount of detail is stunning, all those little pieces and cracks got tattooed really solid. With this one you get a perfect understanding of the depth of the face.
The all mighty Poseidon got portrayed yet again, this time with a few sea creatures around him. The beard and hair of him got such a nice shading along with the face. The fish, on the other hand, looks slippery like it should and got some white tattooed on some of the scale to light them up as the light reflects on them.
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.
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.
This dog snout is placed in it's own paw print. Our customer brought a paw print with her. With this replica we could manage to tattoo the design in the original paw size of her dog. A tattoo can be a sweet reminder to the joyful time we have spent with a family member as seen in this beautiful example.
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.
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.
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!
"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.
"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!
"Focus on what you care about, everything else is a distraction."
This realistic upper arm tattoo shows Poseidon, he was one of the Twelve Olympians in ancient Greek religion and myth, god of the sea, storms, earthquakes and horses
