Today I would like to show you an amazing full body skull tattoo done by Thomas Hooper, an English born tattoo artist who works out of Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn NY. He is very well known for his amazing tattoos and he is one of the most talented and imaginative tattoo artists in the world. Thomas is also a very talented graphic designer and painter. His work draws its influences from many things – the sanctum of nature and natural forms, the unconscious, mathematical and geometric patterns, cosmology, and eastern religious images. He tries to incorporate these ideas into intricate patterns and iconic folk symbolism– using complex pointillism, repetition, and detailed line work – with the hopes of creating a vernacular that is both meditative and pure in form. Thomas is constantly exploring new ways to improve the skills and options available to him, finding new ways to develop techniques and tools beyond what is already necessary.
