Jeff Soto Inspired Coverup

The very talented Sergey Vojnov at Extreme Art in Saint Petersburg, Russia did this amazing coverup tattoo, based on Jeff Soto artwork. I see a ton of extremely high quality tattoo work coming out of Russia these days.

  1. Wow…just wow! I’ve never heard of the artist who’s work this is based on, but I really love it. I see a lot of tattoos I like but rarely one that I just can’t stop staring at! AWSOME work!

  2. Oh, it wasn’t about Jeff SCOT Soto ( I was kinda hoping it would be :)

  3. he did the artwork for fingertight’s cd “in the name of progress”. i’m in love with his work

  4. The bubble border is insane! It almost looks like scar work. I want to go Russia for my next tattoo.

  5. That’s incredible. I agree with Amber, I love the bubble border. I wonder if it had a bubble border on the original artwork, or if the tattoo artist added it? Either way, I’m in awe.

  6. I have to agree with all of you. That is a very beautiful work of art. And the bubbles are extremely well done. If only every tattoo artist could do that as well as that guy did.

  7. AAAAAHHHHH!! I have that same tattoo… kinda. Jeff Soto made a four color lithograph of this image and that’s what’s on my back! I should send it in! He’s my favorite painter. BEAUTIFUL STUFF!

  8. That’s incredible.

    I want to see what a tattoo like this would look like in 10-20 years time. Would it still keep some definition or will it just be a colourful splodge?

  9. its utterly and stupendously out of this world. I love it. I’d so much rather get something like that than something meaningful. Its just so great.
