Real life has colors, millions of different colors. So it takes some serious skill to realistically render our multihued world using only black and grey. Beny Pearce is able to do just that, and to do it absolutely brilliantly.
One of the premiere black and grey tattoo artists in the world, Pearce brings life to his pieces without the aid of color. With a spectacular understanding of lighting and a light touch while shading, Pearce does masterful work. Many of his pieces appear to be 3D with the artwork jumping right off the skin.
The Melbourne, Australia resident has taken the tattoo world by storm to the tune of over 75 thousand followers on Instagram, which is no small feat. Have a look at some of his latest works to see what all the hype is about.
Pearce is working out of the newly opened Oculus Tattoo in Thornbury Melbourne, Australia which prides itself on being on of the elite, high-end tattoo studios in the country. He's a part of a world-class team there that includes Matt Pearce, Tim Tavaria, and Mill Younger.
