By mingling illustrative and geometric elements together and a splash of color here and there, Jessica Svartvit is challenging the conventions surrounding blackwork tattoos. Each of her compositions contains bold as well as fine linework, measured stippling, and a rich array of patterning. Though her work is exceedingly complex, it's perfectly executed and extremely pleasing to the eye.
What makes Svartvit's work stand out from the crowd is how she fuses together so many different techniques into each tattoo. In any given composition of hers, you will find bold silhouettes, just the right amount of crosshatching, meticulous pointillism, a charming central figure, rich geometric sequences, and bursts of vibrant color. All of these visually striking components make her pieces incredibly exciting to take in.
Svartvit's technical prowess as a tattooist comes across in all of her work. The exactitude with which she seamlessly unites such disparate modes of tattooing is a testament to her artistic expertise. Whether it's sacred geometry, a cute pet portrait, or sublime landscape, her level of control, eye for detail, and innovative imagination is evident in every piece she creates.
