SESSIONS: Mike Reed Tattoos a Traditional Take on Erotic Imagery

TattoodoTV1 min Read

Reed's American traditional style tattoos are clean, simple, and bold — just like they should be.

“You can make out that tattoo from across the street.” This is the single greatest compliment that you can give to a traditional tattooer, and Mike Reed’s work lives up to that ideal, even when he is working with subject matter that might be a little controversial.

Reed's style is clean, simple, and bold — everything a good traditional tattoo has to be. Foregoing the bells and whistles showcases the innate strength in the American traditional tattoo style and reminds us that simplicity is strength.

Check out more of Mike Reed's impeccable traditional work on his Instagram. You can see plenty of other tattooers hard at work in our SESSIONS series, including Shanghai Kate Hellenbrand, Nene, Adam Guy Hays, Phil Hatchet-Yau and Guy Waisman.
