Tews's body of work shows just how multi-faceted the watercolor style is with some pieces forgoing any line work, and others incorporating a mixture of thin and thick sketchy illustrative lines to create depth and detail. Some watercolor pieces can look alike and rather generic, but Tews has a unique style which means all his clients leave with truly one-of-a-kind tattoo.
