Marcin Aleksander Surowiec Tattoos 10

Take classic tattoo art, mix it together with a rainbow of color and some modern abstract design… and if you’re lucky you might come out with the work of Polish tattoo artist Marcin Aleksander Surowiec. His works channel many of the classic linear skin art forms, yet twist them into something completely original: his characters get geometric patterns in the place of their face; rainbows of color are overlaid on print-like forms; and then there are his completely original designs.

Surowiec has the special ability to create highly diverse work, and yet maintain a uniform style through it all. Although he clearly channels the work of others, his remixes take on such a personal and artistically creative style, we could almost believe he was their original creator. Ready to get inked? You can get in touch with the Warsaw based artist and see more of his work on Facebook.
