Szymon Gdowicz: Creator of the Tattoo Art Called Pain Ting

Fine art and tattooing are becoming one and the same these days with many painters working in both mediums...

Szymon Gdowicz hails from Poland and has coined the term for his style of tattooing as Pain Ting. His pieces are often abstract in watercolor and usually bright bold colors that make stunning tattoos. 

A signature of his work is the large inked brushstrokes that look as if he was using a large paintbrush to apply the ink. This is one tattoo artist who really does use the flesh as a canvas to create superbly unique tattoos. If you are a fan of abstract art and tattoos this is the guy for you!
