The Dark Tattoo Art of Grindesign

Sublime blackwork that emulates fine arts.

Robert A. Borbas is best known as Grindesign, one of the greatest masters of blackwork tattooing.

The tattoos of Grindesign are impressive, to say the least. His intricate designs elegantly contrast light and darkness. His subjects are usually really gothic, with many skulls, folklore creatures, and other mythological monsters. But his mastery of blackwork is putting his work closer to poetry and romanticism than of brutal horror. 

Grindesign's art reminds of ancient engravings and fine art's masterpieces. You will be bewitched by his sense of details and powerful iconography...
