See the Dreamy and Deathly art of Illegal Tattoos

There’s something about fine lines and delicate shading that draws me in to a tattoo. Give me black ink laid into skin with a feather touch any day. There’s a dreamy quality to what @illegal.tattoos does that has me totally captivated! Some of J.Diego’s details are so delicate it’s hard to imagine how they were made with a tattoo gun. He’s about to hit the road at the end of the month and head to South America where he’ll be guesting at shops in Bogotá, Colombia; Asunción, Paraguay and Buenos Aires, Argentina – stay tuned to his IG account for details or email him here. You can also pick up prints of his art right here. Right now, take a peek at some of my favorites…
