I can certainly say that one of my favorite kinds of tattoo (visually) is simple, black solid line work. Even if it is an unfinished piece, I love the simplicity and relationship it has to illustration. This series is from the incredibly talented Flo Nuttall, who believe it or not, has only been tattooing for a year and a half!!

The boldness of his work and the contrast of the elements make for incredibly unique and beautifully designed stems. Gakkin is a tattooer out in Kyoto, Japan working at Harizanmai Tattoo.

Juxtapoz // Saturday, September 29, 2012
I was up in Portland a few months ago eating donuts and playing dress up at Upper Playground when I crossed paths with an artist named Hill Hudson who, after talking for a few minutes, handed me a sticker that was cooler than any sticker I had seen since the Zorlac and Santa Cruz skateboard days. When I say cool, however, I mean cool as in "disgusting."
