What Does the Fox Tattoo Say?

Today's tattoo of the day is this amazing side piece by Eva Mpatshi. Mpatshi is best known for her sketch work style that incorporates elements of watercolor, trash polka, black work and abstract tattooing all into one. Based in Belgium at Beautiful Freak Tattoo, she tattoos alongside the geometric master Vincent Hocquet. His influence clearly shines through in Mpatshi's work as every piece she delivers is filled with an amazingly steady hand to create clean line work and solid color saturation. In fact, since this piece focuses so heavily on line work, Mpatshi's hand must have been tremendously steady to bring about such a clean piece on someone's ribs. Today's pick features this cool, stylized fox above an old school Polaroid camera. We love Mpatshi's use of cross hatch shading to give subtle depth to this sketchy fox, and we adore her strange, yet aesthetically pleasing, placement of the orange, overlapping both the fox and the camera as to give the illusion of color without needing to fully block out the image. Since Mpatshi also is the artist and writer behind the web comic Frank 'n Me, it is no wonder that she can so beautifully bring about this fun, whimsical style so well.
