This week we are taking a look at realism! Tattoo’s so crisp and realistic that they look like photos. There are artists around the world who have become internationally famous for executing flawless realism, it is difficult to achieve and requires years of practice and hard-work to attain. Our artists are constantly pushing themselves in the studio to improve, and hyper-realism work can be one of the most challenging style’s they can tackle.

Fortunately, this style of work is another versatile and broad type that can contain an enormous variety of subject matter. Landmarks, objects, animals, portraiture, anything that exists and even things that don’t can be tattooed to seem as real as that which we look at with our own eyes each day. Black-and-grey or colour work are both viable for these pieces and either can create distinctive and unique tattoo’s.

Tattooing by Jesse Brothers.
Our primary realism artist Kris has been working in this style for over 10 years and has traveled the world with his detailed and expertly-performed work. He is willing to tackle any idea, and is constantly pushing his own boundaries to see what he can create. He has taken awards at international tattoo conventions for his work and continues to wow us in-studio every week with his newest works. Alongside him we also have another virtuoso realism artist in Jesse Brothers. Jesse stumbled across realism work as an apprentice and has only flourished in it since. While he is in the process of developing a unique style of artwork he can enjoy, his realism is some of the best in the country and he only continues to improve with every tattoo.
