Cisco’s Tattoos from 2014

knife juggler, circus, tattoo

Cisco’s blackwork is much stronger than his full-colored tattoos. The way he boldly outlines and shades with linear hatching and dots, there’s an old-school illustration quality to it. Some of his visuals take you on a journey to the golden age of Circus—with the knife juggler and lots of animals. One noteworthy tattoo is his spin on the snake and flowers, its styling may even make it bearable for people with snake phobia.
