Polish Artist uses the Hand-Poking Method

geometric tattoo on arm by Karolina Czaja

Karolina Czaja is acclaimed for her dotwork, and although she tattoos with a modern machine, she is best known for applying a traditional technique of hand-tapping the ink with bamboo sticks taped together with a needle. Her designs are based on indigenous art from the Philippines, Samoa and beyond.
