[COLOR="DarkOrange"][SIZE="5"]Studio Feature - Modern Body Art, Birmingham, UK.[/SIZE][/COLOR]
Firstly, an introduction to [COLOR="Blue"]Modern Body Art[/COLOR]
, the studio that does my tattoos and piercings. They have a great team of talented artists as well as regular guest spots by international artists, most recently Ivana, who does some beautiful colour work:
I think the lack of a noticeable outline really gives a 'painted on' look..
Now some work from Jo Harrison
who co-owns the studio. Jo regularly tours so she can be hard to get hold of for studio work. But it's worth the wait...
And I had to show this, voted 'best use of a nipple in a tattoo'
co-owns the studio with Jo. He's responsible for my full sleeve. He does a lot of Japanese / Asian work, but is very versatile:
specialises in 'dotwork' and symmetry tattoos. Very intricate work with amazing results!
does a variety of styles, all very good mind..
does some amazing black and grey work, especially portraits..
will be doing my next tattoo (a woman and rose in you're interested
) her work is very nice..
And finally, their apprentice-come-tattooist, Glenn Patrick
All in all a great studio and I urge anyone in Birmingham or the West Midlands looking for some high quality work to pay them a visit
