Whether it's black and grey or bold and colourful a portrait tattoo, when done right, looks amazing! Now not every tattoo artist enjoys tattooing portraits, after all it is not a simple tattoo, the detail and shading alone a tough skill to master. Any one who has attempted to sketch someone's face on paper will know it is an incredibly difficult feat to re-create a realistic image of the person, so imagine trying to do it on skin! Tattooing a portrait is hard! Yet there are a number of artists who are masters of this particular tattoo style and create some breathtaking portraits. Javier Antunez is one such artist, his work is both incredible and inspiring. Antunez currently tattoos at Tattooed Theory, you can find his links at the bottom, but first check out these twenty portraits... Antunez's ability is stunning, see for yourself!!
