Big Al's Skulls

Tattoo Artist, Big Al of Doncaster, South Yorkshire, UK painted these skull pieces.

I like being able to see the artwork of tattoo artists, beyond skin. The depth of detail and shading is amazing. That makes them pop from the canvas. These remind me of skull studies. A skull is one of those detailed objects that casts different shadows as the angle of the skull changes. This makes it more interesting to work with and make art from. Tattooing of course, is an art form of it's own. At least three of us don skull tattoos...for the love of skulls and art.
