The Ravishing Neo Traditional Style Tattoos Of Chris Primm

San Diego-based tattoo artist Chris Primm has a way of giving his neo traditional style tattoos—whatever the subject—a wicked smirk in them.

The true beauty of neo traditional tattoos lies within the way the style gives tattoo artists the artistic freedom to inject and develop their own tenor in a particular design. They get to play with shadings, different hue combinations, gradients, and dimensions. Chris Primm took full advantage of this in order to create striking pieces that are simply a feast for the tattoo enthusiast's eye

Chris' forte may be bound to neo traditional, but that doesn't stop him from lightly experimenting on different elements and letting his fingers dip on styles such as black and grey, galaxy washes, and blackwork. His nine years of experience in tattooing were evidently well-spent, judging by his designs.
