Tattoos: Pay the Ransom!

Tattoo by Joey Ortega (3)

Although Joey Ortega’s tattoo designs are within the traditional genre, the artist considers his work to be more stylized and with depth—therefore categorized as “Neo-Traditional.” Ortega is inspired by Japanese art, Art Nouveau, Mexican folk art, iconography, and antique items.

Warning: Contains nudity.
