Pattern Play with Thad Ritchey

This artist is using interesting patterns to take his traditional tattoos to the next level.

Thad Ritchey is an artist tattooing out of California Electric Tattoo Parlour in Soquel, California whose interesting use of patterns immediately caught my attention. 

Ritchey's clever placement of ornamental designs within his tattoos automatically cause his tattoos to stand out from the rest. Whether it's a geometric pattern atop an owl's wings or a pretty floral pattern complimenting a pair of rain boots- Ritchey's unique approach to traditional tattooing is definitely worth taking a look at.
