Brian Decker (purebodyarts.com) is currently guesting in Columbus, Ohio — and I should mention still has some spots left if you’d like work done — and doing his typically amazing work. Check out this intense example of geometric skin removal over blackwork… A piece that really makes me want to make an over-used and asinine comment about what a sore leg Jack is going to have!!! [Edit: I mean arm!]
Before Columbus Brian did some time in California, where he did a stylistically similar and equally impressive geometric skin removal, this mandala which at first glance I thought was centred by an Obama re-election logo (but then I came to my senses). I also wanted to showcase a beautiful anchor that he incised into Yvette’s back — a piece that is easy to predict will be beautiful healed, with both precise linework and detail, but at a scale that almost guarantees it will stay striking as it mellows with healing.
