  1. omg…i am sooo in love with dot work, but i have yet to hear of an artist in the states who does this…
    beautiful work!

  2. That is a beautiful piece of work. Pointalism is a very interesting form of art–it’s nice to see it translate so well into other mediums. Mad props.

  3. Thanks for all of the lovely comments! Tapsa-it’s all by machine. My arms and the flower on the top left of my back are all by Tomas at Into You in London.

  4. Goddamn, that is gorgeous.
    A friend of mine went to Thailand recently and had a lotus inked on her back using this method. It looks great as well.

  5. Nik was absolutely amazing. Two days straight tattooing and a total pleasure to be around the whole time. She’s a beautiful person.

  6. This guy’s work is fucking incredible. I think I have to go to Belgium. For anyone who hasn’t already read it, Shannon’s interview with him is quite interesting, also.

  7. This is absolutely gorgeous and unique!! Reminds me of Mendhi designs, too

  9. Nic.. or anyone else if they know, what are the markings going down her hips? scars? if so they seem to have a certain..basic but appealing pattern to it.
