Whether in color or black-and-grey, Iwan Yug is able to create eye-catching photorealist art for his clients. This Ukraine-born artist living in Moscow began tattooing in 2005â€”exploring different techniques and styles until resuming to his favorites: realistic portraiture and wildlife. Often using a photo reference as he tattoos, some of his designs require editing and drawing directly on the clientâ€™s body, which he says “is necessary to have good art skills.”
