Once you go blackwork…

Like the old saying goes, “once you go blackwork, you never go back to work”… err… something like that? Anyway, I want to share two great new pieces from two of the masters of geometric dotwork blackwork tattooing, with the top tattoo being done by Matt Black of Divine Canvas in London — I love the way he used multiple levels — and the bottom one, a beautiful swastika earburst, by Brian Gomes on Andre Cruz.

  1. I love it! Does anyone know where I can find a tattoo artist that does some nice dotwork life this in San Diego, California?
