Bold Black And Grey Realism Tattoos By Harley Kirkwood

Tattoo Artists1 min Read

From sweet family portraits to the macabre: Harley Kirkwood does it all.

Admiring a well-executed portrait tattoo is always lovely - to see that a person means so much to another that they actually want them permanently etched on their body. But, sometimes it's also interesting to see realistic horror tattoos. It's a genre loved by so many and also an easy way to spot someone who shares your love for all things blood and gore.

He knows when to use intense blacks to create depth and add an eeriness to the piece, allowing the foreground to really make an impact. But there's also those smooth, soft greys and skin breaks to create skin texture which Harley excels in, taking portrait photographs and bringing them back to life.
