Susanne is a tattooer at Redwood Tattoo Studio in Manchester. She does fine linework, dotwork, and blackwork. All of her tattoos use only black ink, but her intricate dotwork make a great contrast to the heavy black.
Much of her work features popular characters or places from books, film, and tv.
She draws much inspiration from histories famous painters, and even does their portraits.
Her whimsical animal portraits are fantastical and heartwarming, such as space narwhales, dogs in space, dinosaurs in clothing, etc.
Susanne is a must see artist if you’re in Manchester!
Sean Cushnie is a talented artist working out of Kapala Tattoo in Winnipeg. His style is both neo traditional and neo Japanese. Sean uses a mix of black and grey with bright colours to make his work pop. Sean’s black and grey work borders on realism while his colour is solid neo traditional, making it not only a mix of colouring, but also mixing style.
Sean is a must see Winnipeg artist for your neo trad needs.
Reuben is a tattoo artist working out of Kapala Tattoo in Winnipeg. His main styles are American traditional and Japanese. Along with tattooing, Reuben also paints; mainly Japanese inspired images.
Reuben has years of experience under his belt and is a pleasure to be tattooed by. Even while tattooing my stomach which is quite a tender area, he was able to take my mind off the pain with conversation.
Reuben has been doing larger pieces recently including half and full sleeves. His American traditional pieces are reminiscent of the old days, but have a twist of newer style, particularly while tattooing lady heads.
His Japanese work is bold, often featuring waves or flowers, which really make the main center piece of the tattoo pop. His Japanese work is generally done large in a arm or leg sleeve.
Reuben is a must see artist for your traditional or Japanese tattoo needs.
Dale Sarok is a tattoo artist out of Vida Loca Tattoo in Bolton, UK. Dale does black and grey work, making great use of dead space on client’s skin. His work is incredibly detailed, and often features whimsical creatures, various religious imagery, and geometric shapes. He is also an illustrator and often uses quite large canvases for his work. He has done album artwork for the band “Counting Days”.
Some incredible mythological creatures. A great mix of macabre and elegance in these pieces.
Dale also does the occasional portrait piece. Any fans of “The Adams Family”?
Two full sleeves featuring skeletons, skulls, and lots of geometric work. These must have taken a very long time to do with all the detail put into them.
Myself and many others look forward to seeing what Dale will bring to 2016!
