French artist Xoïl (who also goes by Loïc) creates surreal, hyper-detailed tattoos that evoke collage, typography, and stencil art. Xoïl’s tattoos assemble the artifacts of print into tight, chaotic compositions that include torn paper textures, moire patterns, dot-matrix designs, chicken scratch, watercolor washes, dripping ink, bleeding markers and accidental-looking smudges of paint. These permanent “imperfections” are striking to behold.
Currently working at Saved Tattoo in Brooklyn (NY), Thomas Hooper is known for his monochromatic body art using dot and line techniques. http://illusion.scene360.com/art/49012/striking-tattoos-from-brooklyn/ #tattoos #tattoo
