One thing that Andrey Lukovnikovâ€™s colorful tattoos might remind you of are clipping masks from Adobe Photoshop. The combination of bold, busy imagery with a crisp edge mimics digital imageryâ€”as if these bugs, birds, and feathers are concealing a larger part of an overall picture. And if you watch some of Lukonikovâ€™s videos, itâ€™s clear that this type of media influences his body art. Entire sketches and paintings are created on the computer. Although itâ€™s a challenge to replicate this precise pixelation on something soft as the skin, Lukovnikov achieves the clean outlines that for which digital work is known.
