Tattoos, like any other art forms, are composed of many styles and distinct touches depending on the artist.
Sometimes, it varies depending on the area. Many styles have since evolved through the many eras, going back to the sailor days and even before that. New school tattoos have given birth to a variety of forms, developing a creative pool of 21st century tattoo artists that keep expanding the possibilities of the art form.
Okay, we didn't really need that long explanation. I guess I just needed an introduction to a new segment I hope to keep consistent in the blog, Tattoo Artists You Really Should Get to Know. As we all know, the web is where many, many talented people are hidden, which includes the artists. I mean, I wouldn't have known most of the artists I look up to now if I hadn't stumbled upon an Tumblr post about them or their work. I hope to also see the Tattoodo artists blossom, using Tattoodo as an outlet for development.
Okay, without any further ado, I'd like to introduce a very lovely lady by the name of Alex Strangler who makes really tasty pieces for the skin. Living in Los Angeles, CA, she works at The Dolorosa Tattoo Company in Studio City.
Ms. Strangler is quite a well-known name in the scene, with her adorable custom-mades and pop culture references, it's hard not to fall in love with her quirky works, reflecting an even quirkier artist.
She does a lot of Daria, Beavis & Butthead, The Simpsons, Tina Belcher and Disney. It's like a childhood tatt dream come true. She's nailing it.
Are you a Tattoodo artist and you've got some impressive wins you'd like to share with the blog? Or you know an artist who definitely deserves a spotlight or two? drop me a message at email@example.com
Note: Alex got in contact and corrected the confusion of a reader; this print, in fact, is a collaboration between Alex and another artist, Drew Cottom.
