Beautiful Illustrated Tattoos by Jade Tomlinson and Kev James – Design You Trust

Beautiful Illustrated Tattoos by Jade Tomlinson and Kev James

The work of London-baased artist duo Jade Tomlinson and Kev James of Expanded Eye spans paintings, installations, street art, sculptures and most importantly tattoos that blend line work, typography, and geometry. The pair approaches each tattoo as a piece of art, firmly establishing a narrative and purpose behind each design before making a commitment.

They even go as far as asking potential customers to not “overly concern yourself with the aesthetics,” and instead let the piece evolve organically based on their own discoveries. You can see many more of their tattoos on Facebook, they have several new giclée prints available through Vaults Gallery, and you can have a peek in their online shop.
