Vid Blanco's Powerful Photo Realism Tattoos with Minimal Color

Photo realism is popular in tattooing and Vid Blanco has got the technique down to flawless to create visually stunning pieces.

At the tender age of 22 and with just four years of tattooing under his belt, Vid Blanco is slaying it like a pro in the field of photo realism. He works at Rock n Roll Tattoo shop in Southampton, UK. I am a huge fan of this style and keep finding incredible artists working with it across the globe. Nowadays, the bar is set high for artists. Vid Blanco is up there with the big guns in my book.

His work is soft and effortless looking with incredible use of shading and minimal palettes. I particularly love it when he goes for bold black and grey with striking tones of blue ink. His work is simply gorgeous and I'd love to have a tattoo by this guy. If you are into photo realism tattoos you must get to know his work.
