"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!
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.
"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.
You can't go more tattoo classics than a dagger stabbing through a heart, with a banderole around it. Nice bright colours in the tattoo, well saturated greens, yellows and reds make up a good portion of the oldschool colour pallet. They got used here to great effect. The linework is clean and the shading in yellow on the grip is especially nice. Overall, this is an amazing art piece, and an honorable design for such a classic motif.
This price John tattoo sits so well on the leg, with his hands on the logo and the crown on top you can really tell who the King is. Beautiful shading on this piece, it gives it this three dimensional look, as if the hands are really gripping onto the coat of arms. The evil smirk and the crown that pushes his ears down, really do this character justice. Well done custom tattoo!
This newschool angel-devil is sitting perfectly on the upper arm. The use of purple to show the corrupt side of the person is a nice change, because usually the bad get portrayed in red. But with the purple you can still highlight the lips of the angel with some reddish lipstick.The lips got a pretty sun reflection, which makes them pop. In general due to the fine highlight-lines tattooed in white the tattoo looks really three dimensional. Especially the white line around the arm, that is reaching forward, complements the movement of it. Great custom design from our tattoo artist.
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.
"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.
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.
