Ok, enought with the hard lines in this series on avant-garde tattoos. Andrey Svetov (Studio Master&Tattoo, in Kaliningrad) is a Russian tattoo artist that uses grittyness as his trademark style. I really like the medieval feel his tattoos have.
Tattoos have a huge impact on the person getting one no doubt but also resonate with the ones who look at it. Part of the reason that people get tattoos whether they admit it or not is also to get the attention of others.
