Excellent use of color

It’s possible that you’ve already seen this remarkable tattoo by Portland, Maine’s Chris Dingwell (chrisdingwell.com) because it’s been doing the viral rounds, and deservedly so. This is one of the most powerful uses of solid color that I’ve seen in a tattoo, and is graphically as strong as anything one could do. I also think that unlike many tattoos that rely on color as a design element, this piece should stand the test of time, because the colors are strong and solid rather than complex fades that don’t always stand up. This really is a brilliantly unique tattoo, one of those pieces that you have to look twice at to realize that it even is a tattoo, not body paint or a design printed on fabric. The wearer is very lucky.
