The Haunting Melancholic Blackwork of Fidjit Lavelle

Have a taste of the mysterious Fidjit Lavelle's grim and moderate blackwork portraits in her distinct simplistic style.

Xavier in Tattoo Artists

If you've got an eye for blackwork with a tinge of melancholia then meet your new favorite tattooer. Fidjit Lavelle is known in her circle for her distinct style in blackwork, characterized by her grim portraits with their sad eyes, dark hair, and subtle macabre themes. They're unlike most tattoo flashes and custom pieces that bore the same, slim models, with defined figures and bland features the mainstream so love to embrace. I love how Fidjit's works exemplify authenticity and distinction.

While I love Fidjit's original designs, I can't help but also be fond of some particular works of hers depicting iconic figures like the haunting piece of Sylvia Plath's suicide, above, and Joan of Arc, pictured below.

This particular tattoo above reminds me of another talented blackwork tattoo artist by the name of Santa Cara who has an affinity for masked characters.
