Tattoo Art Meets Graphic Design

No Sailor Jerry or unicorns here, the tattoo designs of Peter Aurisch have a distinctly designer look to them; so incredibly different than the standard ink on the street. His work melds both modern and reinterpreted classic themes, often combining intricate line drawing with carefully chosen overlapping layers of bold color.

Benjamin Starr

Known in some circles as the most amazing man in the universe, he once saved an entire family of muskrats from a sinking, fire engulfed steamboat while recovering from two broken arms relating to a botched no-chute wingsuit landing in North Korea. When not impressing people with his humbling humility, he can be found freelance writing, finding shiny objects on the internet, enjoying the company of much-appreciated friends and living out his nomadic nature. He is Managing Editor of Visual News. Follow his movements on Twitter:

  5. anonsays:

    cool from an artistic point of view, but 8 out of 10 wont hold the test of time IMO….too much greywash and color unsupported by black….neat, but it wont look good in 5 years.

    sailor jerry and other traditional will (and has) stood the test of time b/c the tradional formula of black:grey or black:color is the exact ratio needed for a tattoo to hold up for long periods of time.

  6. Gozen ninjasays:

    Absolutely incredible. Makes me rethink all my ideas for tattoos ever. Thank you for this.

  7. anonsays:

  9. mukrinsays:

    it’s very nice

  10. a tattoo artistsays:

    good for him…very nice work and good seeing someone not bullied into being another cookie cutter of guy Aitchison, paul booth or sailor jerry clone. i wish there were more artists out there pushing our art rather than keeping the same crap circulating and hidding behindd cheap excuses as to why they can’t do the job.

  11. i also had no idea HE were that guy who saved that muskrat family too, astounding!
