A year ago, Adam Traves was jobless and living off of making amateur tattoos in his home in New Zealand. With nothing but his ‘better-than-average homejob’ tattoo skills and an adventurous spirit, he hopped on a plane to Melbourne, Australia.
Adam found a home in Crucible Tattoo Co., where he now spends his days doing mostly ignorant style tattoos. The 28-year-old identifies as queer and incorporates a substantial amount of elements that celebrates being queer in his works.
Adam's works consist of ignorant style pieces, layering some of his tattoos with overlays in pink ink — has there ever been a more glorious color? He also does abstract and semi-abstract pieces, characterized by distorted lines and hints of pink. On top of all that, Adam is also no stranger to deconstructed tattoos which he only recently started getting into.
