This week’s MotD theme: Tis the Season for Snow
Artist extraordinaire Nick Baxter inked this stunning snowflake tattoo on a friend’s hand. This style of tattoo is new to me and creates a very dramatic and powerful look.
About this tattoo he states:
I did this snowflake on Annie Mess’s hand. She is a friend, an awesome person, Austin TX question-answerer, and a really good tattooer. She works at Resurrection tattoos here in Austin. To do this tattoo I used my FKI Galaxie shader machine with an outlining needle for the first time, and it performed flawlessly. Meaning, it’s a great machine.
About his art he states:
I want to create images that inspire people to look beneath the superficial veneer of mundane reality, in order to appreciate the profound and often overlooked aspects of life and the world around us. My work reflects an ongoing investigation into the nature of suffering, hope, and personal transformation, inspired by a sincere concern for the human condition and a deep appreciation of the natural world.
