Welcome to Tribalik's top 5 Tattoo Artists whom we LOVED at this years London Tattoo Convention.
We've just come back from the most well known, prestigious events in the tattoo world; 'The London Tattoo Convention', where traders, artists, performers, and punters all come together to share their love of magnificent body art. Needless to say we were very excited to attend and of course, we weren't disappointed, we saw: fire breathing, burlesque dancing, live music, captivating and innovative adornments, passionate artists coined with sublime beauty leading to awe-inspiring designs on the most natural of canvasses.
At the convention, we were so impressed & inspired by many tattoo artists that we wanted to share with you our top 5.
So, in no particular order here is our narrowed down top 5 Tattoo Artists at the London Tattoo Convention this year.
This artist uses a style that is completely unique-unlike any other, adding layers of patterns and dimensions . The tattoos Mowgli creates are deep and multi-faceted. We are blown away by his vision.
Lewisink's style is bold and mesmirising. The detail of his work is incredible, using tessellating patterns over vast areas of the body. The ethereal quality of this artists designs are, (forgive us) out of this world!
Antony's tattoos are distinctive and VIBRANT, his use of detail makes his pieces come to life- particularly in the animals he depicts. We adore his deeply evocative style and the use of a heart-warming palette of colour.
Coen seems to be able to do every tattoo style possible with sublime ease. He uses patterns, sacred geometry, dot-work and realistic designs but he also isn't afraid of meshing them together to create hybrid tattoos with an edge. Anyone else a bit envious of this insanely talented person?!
5) Dillon Forte
San Francisco based Dillon Forte has us captivated by his wonderful mandalas and geometric patterns, they are so perfectly beautiful- we were lost for words when we saw his work. Sacred symbology and cosmic energy seems to be lovingly echoed in Dillon's work, you could say he wears his heart on many sleeves.
Although we have our top 5 tattooists from the Tattoo Convention, we also wanted to shout out a hugely talented local artist, Daniel Frye based in Eastbourne, UK who creates amazing bold tribal style tattoos.
