While we're on the topic of religious tattoos, let's check out one of the artists who is definitely no stranger to them. Niki Norberg is a celebrated tattoo artist from Sweden. If the name doesn't ring a bell, go on a quick search and get yourselves blown away. I've been a big fan of his for a couple years and I'd say that there hasn't been a work of Niki that didn't amaze me.

In all his carefully crafted works that are mostly composed of hyperrealistic black and grey tattoos, I noticed how many of his works feature angels, crosses, and other religious symbols that are related to the Christian/Roman Catholic faith.
