Seventh Day Tattoo: Spotlight On Tritoan Ly

Seventh Day Tattoo: Spotlight On Tritoan Ly

We get a glimpse are the work of one of the exceptional artists at Seventh Day Tattoo in Auckland, New Zealand.

Seventh Day Tattoo, owned by artist Tritoan Ly, is home to some of New Zealand's most sought after tattooers including Hannah Nova Dudley and Minnie. 


Today we're going to take a look at Ly's delicate lines and immaculate detail, a particular style that the other shop's artists also adhere to. This gives all of the work to come out of Seventh Day a distinctive look, it's basically as if the shop has its own brand, which is pretty awesome. Sure, saying that something is "on brand" makes you sound like a douchecanoe, but there is something invigorating about a group of artists in close quarters, feeding off of the collective energy as they try to one-up each other with every single tattoo. 

Using the same skill set that a naturalist would when out in the field, but applying it to the tattoo medium, Ly's style is perfect for floral subject matter. Strong, bold lines combine with detailed stippling to give the flowers life and vigor. 

This is textbook-perfect placement. 

As well as creating exceptionally beautiful tattoos, Tritoan captures them in stunning photography featured on his Instagram page.
