Tattooed Realism by Ricardo Fumanal

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 04, 2012
Color or blackscale? Full sleeve, or business sleeve? Gorgeous tattooed rendering by the talented fashion illustrator Ricardo Fumanal depicting 2 fully tattooed arms. I'd be curious to know where or who he got his tattoo illustration inspiration from.

Used as a contemporary arts space, the idea for the building was created by French artists, Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus.

Erotic Works by Aaron Nagel

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 03, 2012
