The Grim Tattoos of Alexander Grim

If we are not thinking about the macabre aspect of a sword penetrating the body of a bird, we may actually appreciate Alexander Grim’s tattoo art. There is beauty in the way he composes an engraving-style bird upside down on an arm, or a snake swaying up a client’s stomach. There is an Asian art influence in his work (from line and shading to some of the themes), as well as a European art combination with a heavy dose of Gothicness.
