He told me that this tattoo is five years old, and the colors are still bright and vibrant, so he is very happy with it. It is a very interesting and creative take on a sugar skull.
He credited the work to Hennes Wasserme (@HennesTrueLove), an artist at True Love Tattoo (@TrueLoveTattooDuesseldorf) in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Marius told me he likes Hennes' work because he does "good, old-fashioned tattoos," as opposed to the newer art brut style of tattoo that many European artists have embraced.
Thanks to Marius for sharing this super cool tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!
Correction: An earlier version of this post credited the work to Olaf Lobe (@OlafTrueLove). It has been updated to reflect Hennes Wasserme as the artist.
