Story of Wolf & Dog Tattoo
You can see a tattoo of a cunning fox on one arm and a temperate dog on the other arm. The tattoo is monochromatic with long lines and dotted patterns. It’s a simple yet elegant instance of permanent ink tattoos.
His tattoos often show a struggle between powerful and meek as in Wolf and dog tattoo. Another example of this power struggle issue is a tattoo picturing a furious eagle and a submissive bird on the front body of a man.
Permanent Butterfly Tattoo
Here we can see a butterfly tattoo with two strikingly vicious eyes and two slightly submissive eyes with open stings. It is difficult to analyze the figure as a whole is alarming or humble. This tattoo is coupled with a custom Asian henna design. The artist first draws his vision on the paper and then on a human body. The machine in his hands moves as swiftly as his pen on the paper.
