Apocalyptic clash tattoo, black trees and purple moon, tattoo by Marcin Aleksander Surowiec

It isn’t a surprise that some of the best tattooers in the world come from Europe, it just seems to be a continuation of the exceptional art schools and talent that has been flourishing for centuries there. And that’s why it is hard to ignore the artistry of modern tattooers such as Pietro Sedda (Italy), Kamil Czapiga (Poland), Victor Chil (Spain), Roxx (living in the United States, but grew up in England and other parts of Europe).
