Woohyun Heo creates traditional tattoos with a surreal twist. His crazy designs are executed with absolute perfection, thick bold lines, confined color schemes and flawless shading.

In Woohyun's recent portfolio, there is an abundance of beautiful rope tattoos. Rope is a common image in old-school tattoos, especially used as a border and within nautical-themed designs. 

Woohyn takes the symbol of the rope to create bold lettering and adorable interpretations of simple shapes such as hearts and skulls.
