Was there ever a world-renowned artist as tortured and as brilliant as Vincent Van Gogh? The trailblazing Dutch painter spent most of his life struggling and in despair, though his work depicted a world rich in nuance and poetry.
Committing one of Van Gogh’s masterpieces to tattoo art is no easy feat, but the end result is nothing short of a triumph.
Hours of painstaking detail and concentration, as well as patience on behalf of the client, go into a successful Van Gogh tattoo. And yet the finished homage will be seen and celebrated forever.
There are numerous pieces from Van Gogh’s repertoire to choose from, both renowned and obscure. Perhaps you feel drawn to Vang Gogh’s “The Night Café,” in which the artist reportedly wished “to express the idea that the café is a place where one can ruin oneself, go mad, or commit a crime”. Or maybe a black and white likeness of “Skull Of A Skeleton With Burning Cigarette” is more in line with your style and outlook?
The world of Van Gogh reflects the artist’s own madness and astonishing depth; from his beautiful sunflower arrangement to dramatic scenes of every day life, nothing escaped his eye and inspiration. Whatever space of flesh you choose to dedicate his legacy to, you are no doubt a worthy canvas and movable work of art in your own right.
