May the ink be with you…

May the ink be with you…

Tattoos have always fascinated me. I used to watch every episode of Miami Ink, amazed by their skills. I particularly liked Chris Garver’s and Kat Von D’ stunning portraits. I also follow few others on Facebook - their creations are always a pleasure to contemplate. This album includes well renowned artists, some of which I knew, others new to me. They were chosen for their unique tattooing style and thinking-out-of-the-box works. They are part of Inkstinct, first project to create and offer a comprehensive database with more than 380,000 studios and individual artists, forming an extensive network. The book presents a minibiography and portfolio of 25 featured artists, what inspired them and what’s their particular signature as well as a gallery with a few hundred tattoo artworks of the above-mentioned artists and others. I particularly admired the geometric and abstract style of Emrah Ozhan (Turkey/USA), Adrian Bascur’s (Chile) watercolour technique, Balazs Bercsenyi’s (Hungary/USA) minimalist lines, intricate geometry and illusion pieces, David Cote’s (Canada) neo-traditional and psychedelic tattooing style, Mo Ganji’s (Iran/Germany) tattoos inked from a single line, Little Andy’s (UK) colored pieces resembling Andy Warhol’ style, Pissaro’s (Crimea) botanical tattoos, Eva Krdbk’s (Turkey) and Andrea Morales’s (Spain) microrealism, with cameo like tattoos. Most of them are absolutely gorgeous. Bottom line, even if you are a fan of tattoos or not, you’ll be enchanted by these creations. Great artwork!
