Maggie Cho Brophy tattoos fine line blackwork tattoos out of Gnostic Tattoo in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Unlike most blackwork tattoos, Maggie's pieces are heavy on tattooing techniques rather than large injections of black ink. The use of etching and cross-hatching shading with delicate fine lines adds softness and different shades of grey to her work.
The botanical and woodwork imagery benefits from this style, giving them an organic look and feel. And the animal tattoos take on an old-school book illustration look which gives off feelings of nostalgia.
