If you're a fan of John "Yogi" Barrett (Spotlight: The Mixed Stylings Of Tattoo Artist Yogi Barrett) then chances are, you'll love the work of tattooer Chris Rigoni of Holdfast Tattoo in Perth, Australia. With a similar penchant for mixing various styles of tattooing to create a beautifully conflicting work of art, Rigoni has mastered his own unique approach. 


Rigoni's tattoos normally consist of 3 basic elements: A meticulously rendered realistic image, geometric lines and a pop of neon color. From there, he occasionally adds super fine stand-alone line work, precise stippling, or a splash of watercolor.
