Self-proclaimed "chaotic blackwork tattooer" Frank Carrilho has a tight-yet-loose style and a strong handle on blackwork. Utilizing a sketchy feel and a heavy dose of whip shading, Carrilho travels around the world tattooing, bringing his unique take on a classic look wherever he goes. His open-ended lines, cross-hatched imagery, and charcoal-esque linework make for minimal, raw tattoos with a ton of depth.
Carrilho's tattoos break the bounds of typical blackwork. They have a movement to them that's all Carrilho's talent, and they wrap and move perfectly on his clients' skin. For more of his work, follow him on Instagram.
