Spotlight: The Graphic Tattoos Of Pain Ting

Behind the nickname of Pain Ting is hiding Szymon Gdowicz, a talented painter, illustrator, designer and, indeed, tattoo artist.

Living and working in Krakov, Poland, the young multifaceted artist is experimenting with different possibilities of avant-garde tattoo. His colorful and bold pieces are exploring the graphic effects of watercolor and acrylic illusion, as well as blackwork and negative space. Pain Ting alternates visual pieces with more abstract fantasies, even playing with free hand and randomness. A popular video shows him and his project, Aleatorium, tattooing random paint drips on one of his clients... If you are curious to see the contemporary exploration of tattoo art and looking for inspiration for eye-catching and audacious tattoos, then you should keep an eye on Pain Ting.
