The Hauntingly Beautiful Black Tattoos of Adam Vu Noir

For the macabre lovers out there.

alexwikoff6 months ago in Tattoo Artists

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a bizarre preference for the macabre. From collecting bones, to taxidermied animals, and watercolor paintings of dead plants, something about the melancholy of it all was so beautiful to me. Adam Vu Noir’s work is no exception to this truth. Highlighting everything ghoulish, spooky, and downright weird, his black and grey work is the stuff nightmares are made of — in the best way possible.

With a keen sense of morbid curiosity, Vu Noir's work is reminiscent of a night terror, leaving you with the feeling of waking from a feverish nightmare, heart racing, and yet somehow transfixed on what you've just seen, trying to recollect every minute detail, and leaving you utterly speechless.
