This Birmingham-based tattooist makes perfectly solid black tattoos.
Made from bold black shapes and lines, these firm artworks are like stickers, placed delicately on the skin of their wearers. From captivating portraits to simple two-dimensional flowers, Pauly has created his own distinguishable tattoo style.
Despite utilising nothing but black ink (and the creative ideas from the artist’s brain, of course), these striking artworks are instantly recognisable as his own.
Located at Second City Tattoo Club, Pauly has also recently been creating bespoke pieces of clothing by decorating them with beautiful lettering.
As someone obsessed with roses, I’ve subconsciously chosen to showcase many of Pauly’s unique floral pieces in this blog. As one of his well-known specialities, I’m sure he won’t mind!
He also recently made a tattoo zine that you can buy online here for just a fiver.
Tattoos can take so many different forms. Sometimes they use colour, shading and highlights, and sometimes they don’t.
These seemingly simple, yet technically precise, pieces of art capture something truly unique about tattoos – their ability to make an uninterrupted statement.
