“The tattoo and art worlds are closed off from each other,” says Kevin. "We’re trying to break down the barriers, and show that contemporary art can be a tattoo as well. If you know the tricks of the needle, you can use them to your advantage.”
“Our art is our life,” says Jade and continues “it’s seven days a week, and we put our all into it. It couldn’t work any other way. Being in a relationship and having to devote as much time as we do to our art – it wouldn’t work any other way.”
You can't do anything but admire the way they compose stories, create symbolism and weave their style into tattoos! The placements are interesting, too!
Kevin & Jade had been working together as a couple for 12 years now. How sweet it is to share the same passion! <3
The Expanded Eye duo design a tattoo in such a way that it reflects the person's life stories in it.
This couple must've got an interesting life journey together, as tattooed by the duo.
“It baffles us why there are tattoo artists that aren’t creating their own art in their own style. You wouldn’t see that in the art world. Everybody has their own style.” says Jade.
And we certainly dig their unique style!
