The Beauty in Chaos: Tattoos by Frank Carrilho

hawk tattoo on arm, linework, black ink

“Light as a feather, stiff as a board.” This phrase can be used to describe the tattoos of Frank Carrilho, a Brazilian artist who incorporates thin, wispy lines with bold, heavy outlines. There is no in-between, but the two approaches work together and convey a chaotic harmony. Each tattoo is simultaneously delicate as a dandelion and heavy as a hammer.
