Tattoos / Body Art

Post by James Thompson »

Post your ink, or share artists you like!

I won't lie, I just got a new piece and wanted to show it off:

The artist also makes noise, so it felt like a good link to this forum:
https://earth-mover.bandcamp.com/album/ ... ng-viaduct

We ended up chatting for a couple hours about harsh noise, distros, devices and gigs. :) Really recommend getting something from them if they come to your town!

That's really cool! Haven't seen a lot of largescale industrial/noise type aesthetics in tattoo "piece" form, only logotypes and single motifs here and there.

cheers! yeah i really love rex's work. there are a few others working in a similar sort of mode - heavy abstraction and expressive forms, really pushing the envelope in what you can do with the medium. i particularly like these: https://www.instagram.com/deadbirdflying_ok/

and of course, the tube station you can see in my piece above is done by this artist, who does amazing brutalist architecture / heavy blackwork, which i think would appeal to the aesthetics of a lot of people here.

godstooth is another artist who works in a similar space, although with a different and very cool style. don't have anything by them yet! https://www.instagram.com/godstooth/

double-posting, but wanted to highlight a lot of the artists i admire i found through this (now, alas, inactive) aggregator account: https://www.instagram.com/newfauves/

hopefully it'll be back again soon, but you can still scroll through their archive and see a ton of incredible, interesting stuff

thanks for posting these!
always loved tattoos, most body mods in general really, even the ones I don't understand/ aren't for me
only one tat so far, a Thor's Hammer on the back of my neck/ between shoulder blades. love it though

also the new one you got is really cool! makes me think of graphic notation
