Dotwork Chest Mandala

It’s amazing how much dotwork — often hand-poked with modern interpretations of traditional methods — and geometric tattooing has exploded in the last two or three years. What was once an aberration, a unique style championed by two or three eccentric tattooists, has become commonplace across Europe, and is now spreading into the Americas. This example of a beautiful chest mandala is by Kike Bugni, working this month between August 6th and 16th in Copenhagen at Baby Lou Tattoo and then in Stockholm from the 22nd to the 28th at Infamous Studio.
