Vibrant Eastern Influenced Tattoo Designs from Chris O'Donnell

Chris O'Donnell has 23 years of tattooing experience and is going strong with huge Eastern influenced tattoo pieces.

At the tender age of 17 back in 1993, Chris O'Donnell started his tattoo career in a biker studio. Amazed by the skills of artists he found in a tattoo magazine he began to wonder how it was possible to create such colors and styles using only needles and ink. As Chris developed his tattoo skills he became more involved in working with Japanese traditional style.

Adding his own flair to the style Chris creates incredible huge back-pieces and bodysuits, many in the Japanese style but he also incorporates other elements from Eastern culture and spirituality. His latest tattoos you can see on Instagram from his work out of Kings Avenue Tattoo in New York are as strong as his reputation and he has some pretty incredible illustrations too. If you are looking for some inspiration for your next piece with an Eastern vibe check out Chris O'Donnell's killer work here.
