At the tender age of 22 and with just four years of tattooing under his belt, Vid Blanco is slaying it like a pro in the field of photo realism. He works at Rock’n’Roll Tattoo and Piercing Southampton, UK. His work is soft and effortless looking with incredible use of shading and minimal palettes. I particularly love it when he goes for bold black and grey with striking tones of blue ink. His work is simply gorgeous and I’d love to have a tattoo by this guy. If you are into photo realism tattoos you must get to know his work. View his interview with us here: http://tattoo-map.com/interview-with-vid-blanco/
I’m from a small town in southern Poland, Iwonicz-Zdroj where I spent 18 years of my life… Then I went to University to study leisure and tourism which is ironically, not related to art at all… My artistic journey began when I came back to London. For the first 2 years I worked as a valet. I went on holiday to return and was told I no longer had a job. This situation forced me into a position where I had to decide what I wanted to do. I began to do simple tattoos for friends and it became a passion of mine. I really love realism and surrealism. Nothing can make me more happy than working on Black & Grey portraits, most recently I do color tattoos as well. New school is kind of style which I think I could be good in it, too… I’m going to do my best to improve myself in those styles.
This young artist is working in the arty tattoo shop Rock’n’Roll Tattoo and Piercing Dundee, in England. Evolving between the universes of Sasha Unisex and David Côté, two similar graphic tattoo artists, Martyna creates little tattoos with catchy colors. Her tattoos are often psychedelic and magical, even a bit esoteric, with cosmic nebulas and northern lights. She also does many Nature tattoos, with delicate vegetables, adorable animals as well as peaceful and inspiring landscapes. Forgetting about the outlines, Martyna Popiel plays with modern techniques of watercolouring and pixel art. The nerdy result is attracting ink collectors, who wish to have something vibrant on their skin. If you wish to see more of her creations for your inspiration, you can reach her on her Facebook page or her Instagram account.
