Florian Karg's Immaculate Black and Grey Realism Defies Reality

Florian Karg's Immaculate Black and Grey Realism Defies Reality
Tattoo Artists1 min Read

If you are a fan of dark art and stunning black and grey realism tattoos, this guy will blow your mind and inspire your next dark design.

I don't think I can ever get tired of looking at realism in tattoos and especially when it combines dark art and skulls. I came across the incredible work of tattoo artist Florian Karg and simply fell in love. His black and grey tattoos are flawlessly smooth and almost seem to defy reality. His designs look like beautifully executed illustrations on skin that take you to a dark place. So if you are looking for something unusual and a little on the sinister side, I'm sure you will get inspired here.
