Resident artist Derek Martinez has been designing calligraphic drawings over the past couple years- his specialized take on classic images.
He was inspired when he came across a flourished pen design in one of his reference books and tattooed his first design of this kind- a decorative fish- on a client. He had fun with it and has been making his own original drawings of this nature ever since. He’s created flourished pen drawings of a variety of subjects, and he’s always trying his hand at finding new ways to dress up imagery.
Derek is always excited to have the opportunity to tattoo one of these designs, and he’s recently drawn up some brand new babies.
Reach out to the shop if you’re interested in having one of these unique things tattooed on ya.
