The Blackwork Tattooing Of Thieves & Co

For a minute I thought those were some really rad stockings that I needed in my closet yesterday, but they're tattoos.

Really awesome ones. So searched I did, for the artist behind this unique style that I regrettably haven't seen much of. From this Instagram account you'll find really nice blackwork and scrimshaw style tattoos with semi- creepy subject matter, my favorite. Burning churches, cloaked figures, a skeleton of Elvis, night scenes, castles, and crescent moons. The Thieves Instagram leads to a website that gives us hardly anything to go on, except the man's name, Houston Patton, and where he lives - Greensboro, North Carolina. Other than that you'll have to enquire.

Check out some works from artist Houston Patton, man of mystery.
