Witness the Bloody Pastel Gore X Animetal Tattoos of Brando Chiesa

I really haven’t seen any other tattoos like Brando Chiesa’s. The intensely neon MTV color palette combined with gore and cute anime characters makes for artwork that’s blindingly addictive to scroll through. I feel like he’s the kind of artist that you need to just stick with — don’t water down his work with someone else’s, just let him make your body his canvas. His inspirations are pastel gore, which I get, and Animetal, which I had no idea about until I googled it, and apparently it’s a Japanese hair metal band that only sang anime theme songs. Not a fan myself, but if it inspires these visually stunning tattoos, I can get down with it. Check out a collection of Brando Chiesa’s gorgeously creepy tattoos and artwork below.
