Beautiful, Detailed Blackwork Tattoos by Frank Carrilho

Awesome chaotic blackwork style tattoos by tattooer Frank Carrilho.

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.
