Wan Tattooer Gives Traditional Tattoos A Twist

Wan Tattooer takes traditional old school style to a fun and unique level with his bold outlines, strong colors and unusual characters.

With over 5k followers on Instagram Wan Tattooer's account is full of colorful bold traditional tattoos with his unconventional twist on the style that get thousands of likes every day. His tattoos use trademark techniques like thick black outlines and the limited color palette of old school but in some of his designs he manages to create characters in his tattoos that almost look like comics on skin.

Wan Tattooer is well-known for his Jesus character who can often be seen battling with the Devil. His depiction of Jesus is kinda like a WWF wrestler who is trying to conquer the Devil with headlocks, uppercuts and low kicks. Sometimes it looks like the two are having some great fun making you wonder...maybe they are friends after all...
