Bold Watercolor Tattoos by Jay Van Gerven

Jay Van Gerven is a watercolor tattoo artist from Tasmania, Australia.

Often the forgotten Australian state, Jay Van Gerven is doing Tasmania proud with his watercolor tattoos.

Van Gerven has fun with color in his tattoos. Since the structure is in black ink, the color ink is secondary to turn the piece from an average tattoo to a beautiful piece of art. Lots of pinks, blues and purples are used which compliment the heavy use of black ink nicely. 

Throw the tattoo rule book out of the window and enjoy these watercolor tattoos by Jay Van Gerven.
