If you gather all the knives, axes, bugs, animal skulls and traps, you will likely have enough props for a horror movie. Some of Roman Boyko’s tattoos look like they came out of a slasher film, or just a sinister edition of an anatomy book. He uses black ink to illustrate the vertebral column and other bone studies; and if you like his art style and themes, you can find the artist working at Faux Pas in Moscow, Russia.
