It's been said time and time again that white ink tattoos are almost always no good if you're really serious with your tattoos. There are supposed to be like 2% of tattoo artists who know how to execute white ink tattoos very well. While I can't prove that yet, I know a guy who's part of the supposed 2% and is currently making waves with his serpent sorcery.
Mirko Sata is a tattoo artist based in Milan who is mostly known for his black and white ink serpent pieces, tastefully intertwined as to create a gorgeous alternative to a yin yang. It's quite a striking and innovative tattoo idea — it's things like these that turn tattoo artists into revolutionary fine artists in the purest form. He brought out the dark in the light and the light in the dark in the most creative way he can.
Aside from intertwined serpentine designs, Mirko also tastefully incorporates arcane symbols, roses, and roman numerals with his serpents — in his signature black and white ink, of course.
