Tattoos & Illustrations For the Love of Mother Earth

David Hale has a refreshing take on both illustration and tattoo work… many times combining the two into highly original and beautiful body based art. His tattoo work often revolves around something very taboo in the contemporary tattoo world: tribal tattoos. Hale however, isn’t focused on those cringe-worthy black ink swooshes we’re familiar gracing the arms of your local muscle head, but rather he works with the graceful patterns and iconography of the Pacific Northwest: eagles, bears and foxes in patches of warm color.
