If you are looking for badass fine art tattoos, you need to consider classic statue tattoos.

Coveted by fans of black and grey tattoos, especially of the chicano style, statue tattoos are recreating the powerful aspect of stone. Classic statues are often tribute to mythology gods or heroes, such as Venus, Poseidon and Heracles. Female statues have really pure faces and elegant drapery. But male statues are the epitome of manliness with huge beards and muscular bodies, teaming monsters or elements. Classic statue tattoos are also inspired by sacred art and famous religious masterpieces such as the art of Michelangelo as well as churches and cemeteries art. With their strong shadows, they create epic designs that are perfectly aging. Many tattoo artists have earned celebrity and respect with statue tattoos, including black and grey master's Jun Cha and Antonio Macko Todisco. If you are looking for bold, eye-catching ink, solid as stone, then you could enjoy these breath-taking classic statue tattoos.
