Creativity and Realism: The Dark Tattoos of Thomas Carli-Jarlier

Thomas Carli-Jarlier's mix of beautiful realism and creative elements results in these powerful and dark tattoos!

Based in the South of France, in Clermont-Ferrand, Thomas Carli-Jarlier is now famous worldwide for his artistic and dark tattoos. Using a stylish mix of black and grey, realism as well as graphic effects close to those of Trash Polka, his portraits are always very visual and vibrant. The sensual melancholy of his female portraits often contrasts with his dynamic splash of paint, sketch like abstraction and original choices of colors.


Thomas Carli-Jarlier is working with his wife Vasilisa in their shop of Noire Ink, founded in 2013, but you can also spot him in international tattoo conventions, guest spots and at tattoo collective Overkame.
